Strips of wood fitted inside the frames to keep cargo away from hull steelwork. Also called sparring

SHIFTING BOARD

Portable bulkhead members, generally constructed of wood planking and fitted fore and aft in cargo holds when carrying grain or other cargo to prevent shifting when the ship is rolling

FURNACE DRAFT

The negative air pressure generated by buoyancy of hot gases inside a furnace. The temperature difference between gases within the furnace and in the atmosphere along with furnace and stack height basically determine the amount of draft generated by the furnace. Draft is generally measured in negative inches of water column. ('-w.c.'; 27.7 inches w.c. = 1 psig)

STACK

A vertical conduit, which due to the difference in density between internal and external gases creates a draft at its base.

STACK EFFLUENT

Gas and solid products discharged from the stack.

STACK LOSS

The fraction of total heat which exits with the flue gas through the stack. The quantity is customarily expressed as a percent of the total heat input. The stack loss is directly proportional to the stack exit temperature; the higher the temperature, the greater the stack loss.

THEORETICAL DRAFT

The draft which would be available at the base of a stack if there were no friction or acceleration losses from the stack.

BRIGHTWORK

An exposed varnished wood or polished metal on a boat.

CALK
