Open Access: World leading research into plasma physics...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Physics, including those researching plasma physics.

Plasma physics explores the '4th' state of matter known as 'plasma'. Profound new insights are being made by Strathclyde researchers in their attempts to better understand plasma, its behaviour and applications. Areas of focus include plasma wave propagation, non-linear wave interactions in the ionosphere, magnetospheric cyclotron instabilities, the parametric instabilities in plasmas, and much more.

Based on the REF 2014 GPA Scores, Times Higher Education ranked Strathclyde as number one in the UK for physics research.

Abstract

Due to the complex and various types of data types obtained on a condition based maintenance system in ships, it is crucial to create a central database system. This system should be able to combine historical data, continuously monitored data and analysed/manipulated data. Therefore, this paper develops a central machinery database for the maintenance and inspection methodology for the INCASS (Inspection Capabilities for Enhanced Ship Safety) European Project. Major raw data inputs for this database are obtained from operators, sensors, classification societies, OEMs and other databases. APIs are used to connect the database to its analytical clients. Data itself inside the database are categorised in several major sections of operational parameters including voyage information, general conditions used at the time of data collection, more static information type data such as general engine information based on manufacturers’ data, and finally monitored machinery data from main engine, turbochargers and etc.
