A RATIONAL METHODOLOGY FOR THE PREDICTION OF STRUCTURAL RESPONSE DUE TO COLLISION OF SHIPS

A methodology for the prediction of the structual response is proposed. A careful review of the existing methods used for ship collision and for crashworthiness of cars and aircraft indicates great difficulties involved in the analytical and experimental approaches. The present methodology is a synthesis of the modern finite-element techniques, the collapse theorems, and the experimental data from collision and other model tests. The basic principle is to use the most reliable method for the particular steps of the prediction procedure. Comparisons between the analytical prediction and the measurement from collision model test indicates good correlation. The results from collision model test and from this methodology are included here for discussion.
