(HP-67) Elements of Oil-Tanker Transportation
An excerpt from the front jacket cover of Elements of Oil-Tanker Transportation, Alex Marks, PennWell Books, Tulsa OK, 1982 {ISBN 0-87814-184-7}, 515 pages

A revolutionary new concept in oil-tanker transportation technology is now presented in Alex Marks' new book, Elements of Oil-Tanker Transportation. The text covers historical, economic, and statistical data as well as oil-tanker applied technology using an HP-67.

Some of the key topics discussed are as follows:
• oil-tanker statistics
• tanker economics
• selected tanker routes
• selected world port facilities
• ship-design characteristics
• oil-tanker history
• flags of convenience and tanker rates
• the Panama and Suez canals
• U.S. ports and terminals
• OPEC ports and terminals
• onshore/offshore terminal concepts
• tanker accidents
• input and effects of oil in the sea
• berthing energy computation
• Poisson distribution computation for estimating berth requirements
• ship collision probability computation
• spill risk analysis
•oil-spill movement computation
• ASTM D 1250-80 tables 5A, 6A, 23A, 24A, 53A and 54A for generalized crude oils in HP-67 format

Oil-tanker industry personnel now have a ready reference for the office, the bridge, or the maritime terminal center.
