5.5.2 As a general rule, bilge and ballast lines are to be entirely independent and distinct from lines conveying pro- duced oil, lubricating oil and fuel oil, with the exception of: pipes located between collecting boxes and pump suc- tions pipes located between pumps and overboard discharges pipes supplying compartments likely to be used alterna- tively for ballast, fuel oil or liquid or dry cargoes, pro- vided such pipes are fitted with blind flanges or other appropriate change-over devices, in order to avoid any mishandling. 5.6 Prevention of progressive flooding 5.6.1 Principle a) In order to comply with the subdivision and damage sta- bility requirements of Pt B, Ch 1, Sec 3, provision is to be made to prevent any progressive flooding of a dry compartment served by any open-ended pipe, in the event that such pipe is damaged or broken in any other compartment by collision or grounding. b) For this purpose, if pipes are situated within assumed flooded compartments, arrangements are to be made to ensure that progressive flooding cannot thereby extend to compartments other than those assumed to be flooded for each case of damage. However, the Society may per- mit minor progressive flooding if it is demonstrated that its effects can be easily controlled and the safety of the unit is not impaired. Refer to

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
