TANKER STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS FOR MINOR COLLISIONS

This report describes the work accomplished during the course of the project on the evaluation of tanker structure in collision. The intent of the report is to present the investigations performed in evaluating the phenomena that contribute to the ability of a longitudinally framed ship, particularly a tanker, to withstand a minor collision. A minor collision is one in which the cargo tanks remain intact. The ability to withstand a minor collision is quantized by the total energy that can be absorbed during the collision.
