COMPARATIVE STUDIES ON STRUCTURAL RELIABILITY OF SHIP'S HULL STRUCTURES BASED ON COLLAPSE MODE ANALYSIS

This paper is concerned with comparative studies on the structural reliability of ship's hull structures based on the collapse mode analysis. A system for the collapse and reliability analysis of ship's hull girders is presented, which are composed of the spatial membrane elements and beam elements. The applicability of the proposed system is demonstrated through numerical examples applied to a simple box girder with longitudinal stiffeners. Finally, the features of the structural reliability of a high speed container ship, a large bulk carrier and a double hull production ship based on the collapse mode analysis are also summarized by successively applying the system newly developed by the authors in previous studies. Through comparison between these numerical examples and previous research, the applicability of the proposed systems is demonstrated.
