ASSESSMENT OF SIMPLIFIED METHODS TO DETERMINE DAMAGE FROM SHIP-TO-SHIP COLLISIONS
Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) is studying the safety of shipping radioactive materials (RAM) by sea, the SeaRAM project. The project is concerned with the potential effects of ship collisions and fires on onboard RAM packages. The eventual goal is to develop a set of validated methods, which have been checked by comparison with test data and/or detailed finite element analyses, for predicting the consequences of ship collisions and fires. These methods could then be used to provide input for overall risk assessments of RAM sea transport. The emphasis of this paper is on methods for predicting effects of ship collisions.
