Geographical and geopolitical factors in development of marine power engineering.

(Download article in PDF)
Abstract

The article shows the urgent need to revise the paradigms, principles, methods and technologies for natural resource management on the islands and coastal areas belonging to the Far East of Russia. It’s time to move away from the exploitation of nonrenewable energy sources and switch to a new framework of natural resources development, world-famous policy of “Eco”.

Keywords

Marine power engineering, marine energy, alternate sources of power, ecological “green” energy source, eco-development, frontier economics, marine resource management, marine energy security.

Issues of docker-mechanics work in Russian ports.

(Download article in PDF)
Abstract

The article shows retrospective review of the issues of docker-mechanics management in the Russian seaports as primary workforce for executing loading and unloading operations. The analysis of team forms of docker-mechanics work organization in the ports reveals the advantages and shortcomings of such management at the present stage of Russian economy development and functioning of the Russian seaports. Using the Queuing theory the author justifies reasonability of creation the docker-mechanics general resource base at seaport within the framework of the independent “labor” company.

Keywords

Docker-mechanic, port management, resource, brigade form, team form, organization of labor, concentration of resources, labor company.

Algorithm of ship-traffic control on the limited harbor area based on vessel speed allocation.

(Download article in PDF)
Abstract

The increasing of a traffic density results in that it becomes more difficult to the VTS operators to accept the optimum decision. An algorithm of ship-traffic control in the limited harbor area only by allocation of the speed of the vessels is presented in the article with explanations and illustrations. Results may be used for the working and in the developing of ARPA and VTS.

Keywords

Vessel speed allocation, ship traffic control, ARPA, VTS, harbor area.

Corrosion and protection of metals in seawater.

(Download article in PDF)
Abstract

The article deals with the evolutionary model s of the corrosion mechanisms and metals protection in seawater. It is shown that the best model to describe the experimental data is the one that takes into account the presence of the biofilm on destroying metal surfaces.

Keywords

Sea water corrosion, metals protection, marine corrosion, mechanism of corrosion, biological corrosion, biofilm, corrosion prediction.

Teaching grammar skill as a main constituent of professional English language communicative competence to would be specialists.

(Download article in PDF)
Abstract

The issues of developing grammar skills based on the building professional English language communicative competence are considered in the paper. The analysis of current state of teaching grammar in high and higher schools with the purpose of defining the reasons for grammar skill low level of school leavers and university graduates has been made. The ways of solutions to the challenges in building communicative competence are sought with the reference to the development of learning theories. The use of teaching techniques with the focus on form in the classroom interaction is discussed. The differentiation of grammar forms in the professional oral and written discourses is specified in the paper.

Keywords

Teaching grammar skill, professional English language communicative competence, learning theories, focus on form, professional interaction, classroom interaction.
