The research investigates the design and utilization of the pipe bracket with titanium metal for the ocean going vessel to confront marine environment. The main aim of this report is to study the performance of titanium metal compared with other materials when they are being used in marine environment .Another aim of this report is to design pipe bracket for the ocean going vessel, then did the simulation and calculation of the loads which applied on the pipe bracket. The studying of my aims were targeted during all the phases of this project.
This report has gone through several stages so that be achieved. The first phase was referring the gathering information about the primary mechanical properties of titanium metal as light weight, flexible and strong resistance to corrosion. The different corrosion properties of pipe material and how they interact together with titanium metal or sea water. The second phase was concerning three different pipe types (rigid support, adjustable support, elastic support) and choose the type of adjustable due to it makes easily assemble due to nuts and bolts could be rearranged for adjusting the support when using on the vessel. Mention the Standard pipe size for using in different place and having a design drawing of my pipe bracket. The next phase was doing mechanical analysis of my bracket model on the Solidworks program and maximum loads which were applied on the bracket were calculated by using related formulas. The last phase was considering the manufacturing process for the pipe bracket and having the primary cost for making and selling it.
