SELECTION OF MAIN ENGINES FOR HOPPER SUCTION DREDGERS WITH THE USE OF PROBABILITY MODELS
This paper presents a new original method of selection of main engines for hopper suction dredgers with regard to probabilistic models. It was proposed to use the normal distribution to describe the operational loads of the main receivers. The principles for determination of parameters of load distribution and design power of the main engines were formulated. Lastly, the principles of selection of the size and number of main engines has been proposed.
