To influence the demand on a power source.
A curve on a chart showing power (kW) supplied (on the horizontal axis) plotted against time of occurrence (on the vertical axis) to illustrate the variance in a load in a specified time period.
The ratio of loaded miles to empty miles.
Turning off or disconnecting loads to limit peak demand.
A load management objective that moves loads from on-peak periods to off-peak periods.
A line painted on the side of the vessel to which the vessel sinks when carrying its full load. The water line when a vessel is carrying its full load.
Corrosion due to the action of "local cells," that is, galvanic cells resulting from inhomogeneities between adjacent areas on a metal surface exposed to an electrolyte.
Cargo delivered to/from the carrier where origin/destination of the cargo is in the local area.
A galvanic cell resulting from inhomogeneities between areas on a metal surface in an electrolyte. The inhomogeneities may be of physical or chemical nature in either the metal or its environment.
A system of astronomical time in which the sun crosses the true north-south meridian at 12 noon, and which differs from local time according to longitude, time zone, and equation of time.
The meteorological visual range, which can be estimated from the average extinction coefficient using the Koschmieder equation.
Winds which, over a small area, differ from those which would be appropriate to the general pressure distribution.
Corrosion at discrete sites, stress-corrosion cracking.
