Ship Hull Structure Fabrication and Wrapping the Stiffener Weld

- The wrapping of the welds at the web side of the stiffener is difficult since it must be completed through the scalp. A large scalp may be required to provide access for the welder. However, a large scalp reduces the amount of weld that can be placed which may lead to weld failures from the cross frame forces. Elimination of the scalap and allowing the crossing of the stiffener and web-to-flange fillets welds is a possible alternative. Analyzing of stiffener details with and without a scalp was conducted....   [tags: Scalp, Cracks]

Why does Benzene Undergo Only Electrophilic Substitution Reactions?

- Why does Benzene undergo only electrophilic substitution reactions. This property can be attributed to the remarkable stability of Benzene, due to the 6 delocalised electrons forming a ᴨ cloud of electrons. Instead of the electrons forming three stationary C==C bonds, they form a delocalized ring which gives benzene greater stability, and this is seen in the enthalpy change when breaking the delocalized ring of electrons in benzene. Comparing the structures of benzene and 1, 3, 5-cyclohexatriene: One would expect to have similar enthalpy changes for breaking the delocalized ring of benzene and the 1, 3, 5 pi bonds of the 1, 3, 5-cyclohexatriene, but in real life it is around 150 kJ/mol in...   [tags: chemistry, electrons]
