The simulation of collision model tests of ships is presented in this report. The objective of this simulation is to validate the methods of analysis, the mathematical model, and the computer program for analysis and design of the collision protection barrier structures. The results are compared with those obtained from the collision model tests. The comparisons lead to the conclusion that the mathematical model is a reliable tool for the design and analysis of the protection barriers of nuclear-powered ships.
