    drilling platform of the day. Built in 1976 by Japan's Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, it operated off the coasts of Alaska, New Jersey, Ireland, and in November 1980 moved to the Grand Banks. Since it was so big it was considered to have the ability to drill in areas too dangerous for other rigs. The government thought it was unsinkable, so they felt that there was no need to train a crew very well. The disaster

  • Plot The Estimated Actual Fracture Gradient Curve

    2174 Words  | 9 Pages

    • Plot the estimated actual fracture gradient curve and the designed fracture gradient curve, which is the estimated actual fracture gradient, less allowance for well control, surge, or ECD. • Plot offset mud weight and LOT (or Formation Integrity Test) data to provide a check of the pore pressure predictions. • Start from the bottom on the mud weight curve (Point A); draw vertical line up to the designed fracture gradient curve (Point B). Point B is the initial estimated intermediate casing setting

  • Underground Hard Rock Mining, Drill And Explosion

    2503 Words  | 11 Pages

    1.0 Introduction In underground hard rock mining, drill and blast continues to be the dominant method of fragmenting rock. Blast hole deviation is an inevitable yet undesirable outcome of small diameter, long hole drilling. The objective of drill and blast is to unlock a targeted volume of rock for removal and further downstream processing. However, if poor drill hole accuracy is observed, outcomes may be significantly different to that which are planned and expected, resulting in additional cost

  • Reflection Paper On Mechanical Engineering

    1539 Words  | 7 Pages

    I believe research is an extremely dynamic process. As time passes, certain areas of research are becoming more salient, while others require less attention. My areas of research are in mechanical systems and solid mechanics. My general research question is how the modeling and designing of components and systems can support engineers toward a sustainable design of products or systems in energy and transportation applications. My primary research focuses on designing mechanical systems/components

  • Circuit Board Fabricators

    CBF has hired you to help determine why they are not able to produce the 1,000 boards per day. 1. What type of process flow structure is CBF using? The company is using a batch shop process flow structure. CBF, Inc. bases its board fabrication process on the average job size or on its typical order. This means that the company proceeds with the manufacturing process in batches so as to meet the specific requirements per order. The typical contract that the company currently gets is 60 boards

  • Schonberger Case Essay

    based on 15 direct labor employees. (See question 2) Problems The following information was identified during a meeting to "brainstorm what can and maybe can't be done to reduce WIP and flow time". · The drill press requires no setup time; it is a dedicated tool. · The drill press is fine but tapping head with spindles in the tapes were problems. This impacts manufacturing by an estimated 5 hours a month. · Assembly "sometimes" had to wait for bases. This impacted manufacturing by an

  • Risk Assessment and Risk Management
