The structural integrity of the ship is assured by implementing a number of different combinations of loads, wave periods, and heading angles. For each situation, a number of load components are calculated, such as external wave pressure, acceleration of the liquid cargo and ballast tanks, accelerations at several stations along the ship's length, wave-induced bending and torsional moments together with the corresponding shear forces along the length of the ship, and the ship's motion in roll and pitch modes. The short-term response of the ship is obtained through the evaluation of the seaway spectrum, which is assumed to be stationary in a period of a few hours. The long-term response and the probability of exceedance of the load are evaluated from the short-term prediction. The hull girder loads are calculated from a number of components. The most significant of these components are the still-water moments and shear forces resulting from the weight of the ship, cargo, a…
Firman Allah SWT yang bermaksud: Wahai orang-orang yang beriman! Bertaubatlah kamu kepada Allah dengan taubat Nasuha, mudah-mudahan Tuhan kamu akan menghapuskan kesalahan-kesalahan kamu dan memasukkan kamu ke dalam syurga yang mengalir di bawahnya beberapa sungai. (Quran Karim, at-Tahrim: 8).
Six (6) Tips for Managing the Project Budget: Many projects will benefit from a Financial Management Plan. This plan provides guidance on how you will estimate, budget and manage costs. If you want to successfully manage your budget you have to be sure to capture all of the expenditures paid to date, including all expenses related to labor, equipment, supplies, material, etc. Then compare the numbers against your budgeted spending for this same time period. You may or may not have an apples-to-apples comparison. There are a couple reasons why a project may look like it is having budget problems when it may really not be. 1. Some expenses may be budgeted for, but in another time period. If you paid for a major purchase this period that was originally scheduled for next period, then it shouldn’t surprise you to see that you are technically ‘over budget’. This type of expense overrun will even out over time. 2. You may appear to be over budget but you may also be ahead of schedule. …
Fatigue life consists of two parts: crack initiation life and crack propagation life. For weld compo-nents it is inevitable that defects exist. These defects form“notch”in the weld and increase the local tensile stress, which is called “notch effect”. Notch effect makes crack initiation life very short, so fa-tigue life of weld components approximately is equal to crack propagation life. These defects in the weld can be regarded as “initiation crack”. The uncertainty of crack propagation rate mainly comes from weld initial crack size, material properties and applied loading in the pressure hull fatigue life reliability prediction. Welding process, nondestructive inspection error and so on may cause uncertainty of weld initial crack size. Due to the dispersed nature of material mechanical property and uncertainty of the specimen test, material parameters are usually treated as random variables. Hydrostatic pressure is the main loading for submarine pressure hull. Its variation cause…
The Message of the Teachings: All praise is due to Allah and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon the Faithful Prophet Muhammad, the Imam of the pious and the leader of those who strive. Peace and blessings be upon his family, his companions, and those who follow his guidance until the Day of Judgement. This is my message to those who strive in the Muslim Brotherhood, who believe in the nobility of their call and the sanctity of their ideology. They have made a firm resolve to live by it and die in its path. Only to these Brothers do I direct my words. They are not lessons to be memorised but instructions to be carried out. So let us proceed towards action my truthful Brothers: ‘Soon will Allah, His Prophet and the believers observe your work. And soon will you be brought back to the Knower of what is hidden and what is open; then will he show you of all that you did.’ (Glorious Quran, Surat-at-Tawbah (9), ayah 94) and ‘Indeed this is my way leading straight; so follow it an…

Undertake some economic enterprise even if you are wealthy. Try to establish a private business, regardless of how small it may be or how busy or scientifically oriented you are. - Imam Hasan al-Banna. Bibliography: Management literature has become so vo1uminous that no one can hope to keep up with it. Even to pick out the “best” books is a fruitless attempt. What I have tried to do is to prepare a list—admittedly overlong—of the books whicha fairly large number of friends, experienced managers in a number of countries around the world, have found to be stimu-lating, readable, and worthwhile. Even so, the list suffers from being heavily biased to-ward American authors. To make the list more useful, I have divided the books into major categories and have not hesitated to list a title more than once if it seemed to me to deserve mention in several categories. Most management books take Western, and especially American, management for granted. For this reason, I have included a smal…
Firman Allah SWT: فَإِن تَوَلَّوۡاْ فَقُلۡ حَسۡبِىَ ٱللَّهُ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ‌ۖ عَلَيۡهِ تَوَڪَّلۡتُ‌ۖ وَهُوَ رَبُّ ٱلۡعَرۡشِ ٱلۡعَظِيمِ Maksud ayat: "Jika mereka berpaling (dari keimanan), maka katakanlah: "Cukuplah Allah bagiku; tidak ada Tuhan selain Dia. Hanya kepada-Nya aku bertawakal dan Dia adalah Tuhan yang memiliki Arasy yang agung." (Quran Karim, Surah At-Taubah, ayat 129). Now, if they turn away (O Muhammad) say: Allah sufficeth me. There is no God save Him. In Him have I put my trust, and He is Lord of the Tremendous Throne. (Glorious Quran, surah at-Taubah: 129). Menurut Ibnu Abi Hatim, perkataan Arasy dalam al-Quran merujuk kepada tempat yang tinggi dijadikan Allah SWT. (Tafsir Ibnu Abi Hatim, tafsir ayat 129, surah al-Taubah) Dalam hadis sahih riwayat al-Bukhari dan Muslim, Rasulullah SAW sering berdoa menyeru Allah yang memiliki Arasy yang hebat ketika menghadapi keadaan kritikal. Abu Daud dan Ibnu al-Sunni meriwayatkan daripada Abu Darda'…

The fatigue loading for the mooring and riser supports are often produced by a mooring/riser designer. Besides, the low frequency component may be significant for example in the moor-ing fatigue loads whereas the hull girder stress response is typically dominated by the 1st order wave loads. Close to the mean water line the stress responses become non-linear due to the effect of intermittent wet and dry surfaces. Accounting for this effect can be done by introducing corrections for the external pressure distributions at the cost of additionally complicating the analysis procedure. Several of the fatigue critical FPSO (floating production storage offloading) details are loaded by two simultaneous load processes. Examples being all foundations loaded by the external support loads and the global hull girder loads. For some structures also the wind loads are relevant for fatigue and their effect needs to be combined with that of the wave loads. In most cases the fatigue damages for the …

Ways to Prioritize Project Tasks: Put these into practice and you'll never wonder what to work on first again! Tip #1: Be realistic You'll never get everything done, so you may as well accept that now. Those tasks that are at the bottom of your To Do list aren't urgent or important enough to work on right now. It will be easier for you to focus on the important tasks once you realize that your time is limited and that you have to get realistic about what you can achieve in a day. If something does become urgent or important, it will naturally rise to the top of the To Do list and you can deal with it then. Tip #2: Use task management software It's impossible to manage your To Do list effectively if it is split between sticky notes, a notebook, an online system and your diary. Pick one way of managing your tasks and keep to it. The easiest way is to use task management software like the great tools integrated into ProjectManager.com. These will help you put tasks in…
إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللَّهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللَّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ “Katakanlah: ‘Jika kamu (benar-benar) mencintai Allah, ikutilah aku (Muhammad SAW), niscaya Allah mencintaimu dan mengampuni dosa-dosamu.’ Allah Maha Pengampun lagi Maha Penyayang.” Quran Karim, Ali ‘Imraan: 31.
The Glorious Quran 22: 38-41. Assuredly Allah defends those who have believed for He does not like any treacherous, ungrateful wretch at all. Permission (to fight) has been granted to those against whom war has been waged because they have been treated unjustly, and Allah is certainly able to help them. These are the people who have been expelled unjustly from their homes only for the reason that they said, "Our Lord is Allah." Had Allah not repelled one people by means of another people, monasteries, churches, synagogues and mosques, wherein the name of Allah is often mentioned, would have been demolished. Allah will surely help those people who help Him: Allah is indeed All-Powerful, All-Mighty. These are the people who, if We give them power in the land, will establish Salat, pay the Zakat dues, enjoin what is right and forbid what is evil, and the final decision of all affairs is in the hand of Allah.
Hadith Nabi Muhammad SAW: Daripada Abu Said al-Khudri RA katanya, sabdanya Rasulullah SAW: “Bagaimanakah saya akan dapat bersenang-senang didunia sedangkan malaikat Israfil telah meletakkan sangkakala di mulutnya. Dia menunggu perintah (untuk meniupnya) apabila diperintahkan maka dia akan meniupnya”. Berita itu adalah amat berat bagi para sahabat Rasulullah SAW, lalu Baginda bersabda, “ Hendaklah kamu berkata, “Hasbunallahuwani’malwakil” (cukuplah Allah tempat kita menyerah)”. (Riwayat: Tirmizi dan katanya Hadis ini Hasan) Huraian Hadith: Islam mengingatkan umatnya supaya jangan terlalu cintakan dunia sehingga mengabaikan amalan akhirat Umat Islam dikehendaki mengingati hari kiamat dengan memperbanyakkan amalan-amalan soleh sebagai bekalan hari akhirat. Apabila mendengar cerita mengenai hari kiamat hendaklah kita berkata, “Hasbunallahuwani’malwakil”. Malaikat Israfil bertugas meniup sangkakala sebagai tanda bermulanya hari kiamat. Orang yang beriman pasti merasa takut kepada kiamat …
Hadis Rasulullah SAW yang diriwayatkan Anas bin Malik yang bermaksud: Suatu ketika Rasulullah ditanya tentang dosa besar, baginda SAW menjawab: Yang termasuk dosa besar ialah menyekutukan Allah, derhaka kepada kedua orang tua, menamatkan nyawa orang lain bukan dalam hal yang dibenarkan agama dan sumpah palsu. (Riwayat Bukhari).
Structural Elements of Jack-Up Platforms: A simple structural approximation of a jack-up rig is one of a “3-D” portal frame. The legs constitute the “columns” of the frame and the hull forms the horizontal element. For the stability and structural integrity of such a structure, the connection between the hull and each leg should necessarily be capable of resisting large moments generated by the horizontal environmental load effects. This “joint fixity” or moment connection is achieved in different ways on different types of jack-up platforms. The Hull is generally made of a stiffened plate “box” structure, often consisting of an upper deck, an intermediate (or equipment) deck and a bottom deck.

Democracy in Islamic Political Thought By: Dr. Azzam S. Tamimi [This paper is based on a lecture given at the Belfast Mosque in October 1997] Abstract This paper surveys the growth and various phases of and influences on the concept of democracy in the Islamic political thought of the last two centuries. Among the thinkers covered in the survey are Rifa'a Tahtawi (1801-73), Khairuddin at-Tunis (1810-99), Jamal ad-Din al-Afghani (1838-97), Muhammad Abduh (1849-1905), Abdurrahman al-Kawakibi (1849-1903), Rashid Rida (1865-1935), Hasan al-Banna (1904-49), Ali Abd Ar-Raziq (1888-1966), Sayyid Qutb (1906-66), Sa'id Hawwa, and Malik Bennabi (1905-73). Reference is made to the influence of Sayyid Mawdudi (1903-79), on the thought of Sayyid Qutb. The paper traces also the bearing of Bennabi's thought on Rachid Ghannouchi and on the Islamic movements of our times. Democracy has preoccupied Arab political thinkers since the dawn of the modern Arab renaissance about two centuries ag…
