ANALYTICAL DATA ON MARINE ACCIDENTS PERTAINING TO OCEAN VESSELS WITH 5000 TONS DISPLACEMENT AND OVER. PROJECT 2: 1953 ACCIDENTS
A collection of analytical data on 1953 marine accidents involving conventionally-powered merchant vessels of 5000 tons displacement and over is presented. All cases potentially affecting a nuclear power plant are included. The volume is divided into four vessel categories: passenger, tanker, passenger/general cargo and miscellaneous. The analyses of accidents within each vessel category are broken down into the causes of damage: collisions; strikings; groundings and stranding; heavy weather; fire and explosion; stevedore, crew and unknown; propulsion machinery and auxiliaries; and shipyard legal liability. Each damage reviewed and analyzed is submitted as an individual case and covers vessel particulars, circumstances of accident, detailed extent of damage, and cost of repair.
