M.V. Arctic propulsive performance summary report by R. A Dick( Book )
3 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
This study is one of a series of 5 complementary studies to improve the knowledge concerning the performance of an icebreaking bulk carrier operating in the Arctic. The study determined the effect of ice ingestion on the performance and strength of the main machinery, gear train, shafting and propeller by the analysis of data recorded from 1979 to 1981 by a data acquisition system fitted to the ship. The M.V. Arctic is a 28,000 DWT bulk carrier built to comply with the Canadian Arctic Shipping Pollution Prevention Regulations (CASPPR) for Class 2 vessels. The data bank from which the analysis was carried out was recorded during commercial voyages to and from the Canadian Arctic and during dedicated trials of the vessel in the Arctic, Lake Melville in Labrador, and the Saguenay River in Quebec
Energy conservation in present and future ships : summary report by R. A Dick( Book )
1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
This document summarizes information on current practices and potential future developments in the area of energyconservation on ships. It presents information on fuel quality and equipment, propulsion power systems, thrust system, auxiliary systems, ship resistance, ship operation, the application of fuel efficiency measures to variousCanadian ships, future fuels and power sources, and future propulsion systemsand equipment. It discusses existing technology and future developments withspecial reference to the application of this technology to Canadian vessels

Personnel Technology: Using an Inexpensive Computer-Based System toTeach Performance-Oriented Skill. Technical Report No. 1728-1. Final Report by Robert A Dick( Book )
1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This research program compared computer-based and programed textbook-based curricula for training students to troubleshoot digital logic circuits. Students were matched in pairs on two pretests, a verbal aptitude test, and an electronics and mathematics aptitude test, and randomly assigned to the two curricula, which contained identical theoretical material. The two training programs differed principally in that the computer-based curriculum provided simulation of trouble-shooting experience through interaction with the computer, while the programed textbook-based curriculum had to rely solely on written explanations. Two criterion measures were employed, a written multiple-choice test of theoretical knowledge and an actual trouble-shooting session on faulty digital logic circuits. These were applied within a week and repeated 9 weeks after completion of the course. While observation and anecdotal evidence suggested that the computer-based curriculum was more interesting and stimulating, expecially for the brighter students, none of the objective measures showed an advantage for the computer group.
