Lifeboat Release Mechanism Tests

A. Simões Ré & L. Oxford
The capabilities of three on-load and one off-load release mechanisms were investigated for normal, extreme and failure type release operations at the Institute for Ocean Technology. The failure of release mechanisms during maintenance and exercise drills is a well-documented occurrence. However, until very recently the possible causes of the failures have only been postulated but never tested in a systematic way. The current study aims for a better understanding of the operational performance of lifeboat...
