Paper Abstract

This paper describes a database tool for Dismantling of Obsolete Vessels (DOVE). DOVE 1.0 consists of three databases: a) The Obsolete Vessels Database (OVD), b) The Metals and Alloys Database (MAD), and c) The Cutting Technology Database (CTD). The OVD provides information on ship name, type, year built, number, status, light displacement, length, beam, changes made, dead weight, number of propellers, propulsion type, and vessel location. The MAD provides information on several metals and alloys and the CTD has information on cutting technologies, decontamination technologies, and waste processing methodologies. DOVE 1.0 runs on an IBM compatible personal computer and was implemented in Visual Basic 6.0 using Microsoft Access as the database.
