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…

Fire Safety Problems Analysis for Merchant Ship Engine Room

The engine room is one of ship’s spaces in which a lot of combustible materials are accumulated on a small area, such as for example fuels, lubricating oils and solvents. During operation,

Trial application of the formal fire risk assesment to fire prevention in ship engine rooms

This paper contains an interpretation of the measures to prevent fire in ship engine rooms, which have been developed by the International Marine Organization as the Guidelines MSC.1/Circ 1321.

Assessment of the Fire Dynamics Simulator for Modeling Fire Suppression in Engine Rooms of Ships with Low-Pressure Water Mist

Water mist-based fire-extinguishing systems are gaining acceptance for the protection of ship machinery spaces. The use of simulation tools presents a great potential for taking a performance-based

Full-Scale Experiments on Ship Accommodation Cabin Fire

The fire hazard of an accommodation cabin for sailors on ships was investigated experimentally. The effects of supply air from the air-conditioning system on the fire development were studied. The

Ghosting flame mechanism under different extinctions modes in ceiling vent cabin

In this paper, large eddy simulation coupled with a low Mach number compressible thermal‐drive flow model had been utilized to investigate the development of large‐scale engine room fire, and the
