#55322, "RE: Boiler Room #1 questions"
In response to In response to 16


          

One of the greatest things I've discovered is the knowledge of the folks here, and how much I am learning about the design of this great ship.

I have a new BR1 uptake. The main steam lines are just place cards at the moment, and the internal room framing is shadowed:


I believe I've located the heat shield Bill mentioned. It forms the wall of the fidley, then follows the back side of the uptake and terminates on the top of the room's center support.
I took the liberty to add some channel supports. The area is super tight for space regarding ladders so I laid the channel on their side:


Been working almost all day trying to figure out the catwalks. Unbelievable huge pain.
Some of the Olympic plans appear to have ladders up and through the gaps in the uptake but the path is impossible. The ladders would need to raise to the level of the top of the room's beams. The distance from the beam to the top of the cut through the uptake is only about 3.5 feet. Too hot for anyone to use, so I put the access to the boiler cut-off (etc) valves along the ends of the room. There are two main room beams which interrupt the boiler valve level catwalk. They are about 3 feet above the catwalk so I put a pair of ladders to transverse them. These catwalks are temporary which are placed just to figure out the locations:


You can see how tight the space for the ladders are against the heat shield up to the fidley. A placecard of the main boiler blow-off pipe is placed up the fidley to verify clearances:


An end view all the way up to the base of the boat deck roof. There's going to be a door to the catwalk on E level. That's the only access I've found to the catwalks above the BR floor. It seems the ladders above E only go to the stack:


Some renders. The final catwalk floors will be the same channel and bars as found in the reciprocating room model:


Orlop (sight glass level). Pretty hot there, I imagine:


Boiler valve level, starboard side looking port. Notice the ladders over the support beams on the left. Also the stairs leading up the fidley in the background:


Another view showing the tight space for the fidley ladders.

>>Dang! I just noticed the tight space to the ceiling up the first fidley ladder. Measures 1'7". Hmm. Gonna have to change that one later. Thing is that you change one thing and it becomes a domino effect with other things around the room. One solution may be a rung-type ladder fastened to the back side of the heat shield?




Lastly, This view is a good view of the boiler valve-level platform:


That's about it for now.
I am really interested on folks opinions- Especially about the uptake heat shield/lower fidley.
Thanks!!!!
