Extension Course (Academic Year 2017)
Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology (TUMSAT)
Ship Engines ~ Learning Cutting-edge Technology ~

The course introduces researches that TUMSAT has been pursuing such as the mechanism of ship engines and devices of the propelling system to generate huge thrust, the state-of-the-art technology for their high efficiency and reduced environmental impacts and the role of marine engineering for efficient ship operation, in addition to case studies in actual ship operations. Application for the extension course are awaited from all those who are interested in marine engines and who are also planning to take the entrance examination to TUMSAT.

Date

July 8 (Sat.) - July 9 (Sun.), 2017

Programs

Lectures: 09:30 - 15:20, July 8
(The sequence of lectures may possibly be switched.)

  • "Mechanism of marine engines and environmental technology"
    Hidetsugu Sasaki, Assistant Professor, Graduate School of TUMSAT
    Ship sizes do vary from small boats to those over 300 meters in overall length. Large diesel engines are over 10 meters in height. My lecture will be on the largeness and output of marine engines and their fuel oil as well as state-of-the-art technology surrounding ship engines from efficiency and the environmental aspects.
  • "Cutting-edge technology for thrust system devices"

船用2ストロークディーゼル機関
Two-stroke marine diesel engine


Hiroyasu Kifune, Associate Professor, Graduate School of TUMSAT

As a car engine generates power and moves the wheels, a ship engine generates and transmits power to the propeller so that the vessel obtains propulsion to move across water.
There are many types of the marine propulsion system and a number of cutting-edge technologies are loaded in the mechanism. Let me introduce a few of them in the lecture.

  • "Role of marine engineers for efficient ship operation"
電気推進船「らいちょう」
Fuel cell Raicho


Susumu Akeno, Professor, Graduate School of TUMSAT
The volume of fuel oil consumption of a ship varies greatly depending upon how to operate it and on its maintenance level, as a car's fuel economy performance varies depending upon the skill and awareness of its driver.
How much is a ship's fuel cost? How should we operate the ship engine to save energy?

  • "Propelling the realization of a self-driving water bus"

練習船「汐路丸」
Training vessel Shioji-maru


Etsuro Shimizu, Professor, Graduate School of TUMSAT
Not only for automobiles but also for ships, research on self-driving has been advanced actively worldwide.
In this lecture, I will introduce the latest development trend of autonomous ships as well as numerous challenges beyond technical perspectives.
