STATISTICAL DATA ON MARINE ACCIDENTS PERTAINING TO OCEAN VESSELS WITH 5000 TONS DISPLACEMENT AND OVER. PROJECT 1

Statistical data on marine accidents for the years 1953 through 1956 for vessels with a displacement in excess of 5000 tons is presented. The intent of this project is the delineation of accident causation factors and frequency affecting conventionally-powered vessels. The data presented should make it possible for others to evaluate the overall hazards to nuclear-powered vessels and subsequently utilize this information in determining safety considerations which may be incorporated into design and operating criteria.
