COLSAFE- Ship Collision Safety Assessment.
The time to capsize for a damaged ship struck by another vessel is studied. External dynamics, internal dynamics followed by damage stability calculations are simulated sequentially taking into account the uncertainty and natural variation in a number of parameters. It is demonstrated which sources of uncertainties and parameters that influence the most the scatter in the estimated time to capsize. Various collision scenarios are investigated and compared considering different ship types, collision angles, ship speeds, etc. The project is a continuation of the previous projects SAFECOLL and HASARD.
