  • This paper presents the results of research on fire hazard coordinated by the Fire Safety Subcommittee of the International Maritime Organization (IMO). On the basis of statistical data, it identifies the main sources and frequency of fires in engine rooms. It also presents calculations of frequency of fires caused by self-ignition of flammable liquids in fuel oil and diesel oil systems, which constitute 60% of the overall hazard. In the theoretical analysis (frequency calculation), changes in… CONTINUE READING
