SUMMARY OF RESEARCH ON COLLISIONS AND OTHER IMPACTS ON SHIPS AND OFFSHORE PLATFORMS

The research at Glasgow University concerned with vessel-platform collisions and other damage mechanisms operates at several different levels, ranging from that aimed at developing sophisticated computer routines to model testing to computer adaptations of simple semi- analytical models. The research project descriptions and program of activity at the University is described in this report. Some preliminary results are presented for small-scale ship-hull model tests and for a large-deflection elastoplastic dynamic analysis of plate strips, the latter being developed to help quantify dynamic effects, particularly strain rate effects in low-energy impacts.
