SEAL

A soft synthetic rubber washer with a steel core fixed in the outer ring (in the seal groove) in contact with the inner ring to retain lubricant and keep out contamination.

CORE

In electrical equipment, a material designed to conduct magnetic flux easily but offer high resistance to current. In a nuclear reactor, the area in which nuclear fission takes place and heat is produced.

ELECTROMAGNET

A temporary magnet made of a ferromagnetic core wound with insulated wire through which is passed an electric current. The current flow through the windings causes a magnetic field to build that will attract magnetic material.

LAMINATIONS

Thin sheets of magnetic steel or iron that are used in armature and magnetic pole cores to reduce the production of eddy currents. The laminations increase the electrical resistance of the core material.

SAN

Strong Acid Number

DOP

Dilution of precision an indication of the quality of the signal being received from the satellite. Dilution of precision can be horizontal, vertical, position and time. These are then combined and given as a GDOP (Geometric Dilution Of Precision). The smaller the number the better. The GPS selects satellites based on GDOP.

FLEET

1) A large number of ships with common ownership. 2) To change the position of blocks and tackles for a subsequent lift.

F.W.A.

Fresh water allowance. The number of millimetres by which the draft changes when a vessel moves from fresh to salt water.

FWA
