A STUDY ON THE STRUCTURAL STRENGTH OF SHIPS IN COLLISION (FIRST REPORT)

One of the most important problems is to investigate the phenomena of ship collisions from the view point of safety. More attention must be paid to collision protection for modern, huge tankers or nuclear powered ships. However, there remain many problems unsolved because of the complexity of its nature. In this paper, various series of tests were carried out on ship side-structure models crashed with rigid bow models. From these systematic experiments, typical mechanisms of energy absorption were found. They are called buckling-type and encroaching-type. These types are inherent to the structure of side models. Simple formulas are established to classify the models into two types. Similarity principles for load-carrying property and energy absorption are also established for encroaching-type and verified by experiments.
