25 DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION AND MAINTENANCE COURSES AND TECHNICAL MANUALS

 

1. BASICS OF SITE WORK (47 Pages PDF Ebook)

Prepare the construction site before pouring foundations or erecting walls. Your work begins with site surveys using specialized surveying equipment and methods. You will pull building permits for various aspects of the project, working closely with local authorities. Once that work is underway, begin site and building layout. Leveling and grading are key components in building sound structures, with competent work taking into account the types of soils with which you are working. Soils testing can help you determine whether you need to perform any soil stabilization before construction begins.

2. BOILER CONSTRUCTION (19 Pages PDF Ebook)

Training for the D-type boiler that has been installed in U.S. Navy ships since 1950. Whether 600 psi or 1200 psi, D-type boiler construction is basically the same with a few exceptions, such as number of fuel oil burners and overall size and volume.

3. READINESS AND CARE OF INACTIVE SHIPS  TECHNICAL MANUAL (212 Pages PDF Ebook)

The purpose of this manual is to provide specific requirements for the inactivation, preservation, long-term storage, safe storage and reactivation of conventionally powered ships and craft.

4. OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE OF CATHODIC PROTECTION SYSTEMS (220 Pages PDF Ebook)

Cathodic protection is an electrochemical method used to prevent or control corrosion of buried or submerged metallic structures. Cathodic Protection systems are active systems that rely on the application of electric current to control corrosion. If current is interrupted, corrosion will progress at a normal rate for the material/environment combination; if supplied current is inadequate for complete protection, corrosion will progress at a reduced rate. After a CP system is installed and adjusted to provide adequate protection, currents and potentials.

5. DESIGN OF DOCKSIDE UTILITIES FOR SHIP SERVICE (148 Pages PDF Ebook)

6. DESIGN OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING CATHODIC PROTECTION (319 Pages PDF Ebook)

This manual is intended for use in the design and construction of cathodic protection systems for the mitigation of corrosion of buried or submerged metallic structures. Design of cathodic protection systems is somewhat different than design of other electrical or mechanical systems because it must be based upon local environmental conditions such as soil resistivity. This manual presents criteria for cathodic protection, methodologies for the determination of required environmental conditions, methodologies for design of cathodic protection systems, examples of typical systems and design calculations, installation and construction practices, recommended initial system checkout procedures, and system maintenance requirements.

7. ENGINEER PRIME POWER OPERATIONS (74 Pages PDF Ebook)

Electrical power is an essential element of military operations. Without it, many crucial systems are unable to operate. Command and control (C2) functions are highly reliant on dependable electrical power. Administrative, health service, and logistical support operations would be jeopardized without it. Many weapons systems are dependent on electrical power for operation. The proliferation of automated data processing equipment that supports modern warfare further contributes to the dependency of the Army on electricity. This growing dependence on electricity causes an increased requirement for the quantity and quality of power for support operations. The indispensable nature of electrical power compels commanders and planners to recognize their electrical-power needs and to ensure that those needs are met.
