A COMPARISON OF THE COLLISION RESISTANCE OF MEMBRANE TANK-TYPE AND SPHERICAL TANK-TYPE LNG TANKERS

This report describes the results of a study to compare the collision resistance of two different types of LNG carriers - a membrane type tanker with essentially rectangular shaped tanks and a Moss-type tanker with spherical cargo tanks. The superiority of the membrane- type ship in terms of its capability to absorb collision energy and the penetration at which rupture occurs is shown in the scenario described.
