PROBABILITY OF COLLISIONS ON SELECTED ROUTES. VOLUME I

Lifetime collision probability on two nuclear tanker routes and one nuclear container route were calculated based on route collision frequency obtained from the Liverpool Underwriters' Casualty Returns for an eleven-year period and a route density projection to 1990. A model was obtained for the probability of collision on a given route for the lifetime of a nuclear vessel. Sensitivity studies were made for variations in nuclear ship speed, speed of other vessels, and average density of ships in a given grid square of ocean.
