DAMAGE SCENARIO ANALYSIS: A TOOL FOR ASSESSING THE DAMAGE SURVIVABILITY OF PASSENGER SHIPS

This paper presents an approach to assess the damage survivability of a ship which derives from an examination of a number of realisable damage scenarios chosen from accident statistics and IMO recommendations, on the basis of maximising the danger of potential capsize. Damage scenarios analysis refers to the procedure of identifying the "worst damage scenario" by studying the dynamic behaviour of the damaged vessel in a realistic environment using time simulation. The practical applicability of the proposed approach is demonstrated by presenting the results of a case study for a modern car/passenger ferry on the basis of which some revealing conclusions on the damage survivability of passenger ships are drawn and recommendations made.
