Advances in the Collision and Grounding of Ships and Offshore Structures PROCEEDINGS OF THE 9th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON COLLISION AND GROUNDING OF SHIPS AND OFFSHORE STRUCTURES (ICCGS 2023), NANTES, FRANCE, 11-13 SEPTEMBER 2023
This book offers state-of-the-art developments in the collision and grounding of ship and offshore structures. The topics covered by the contributions include: dynamics of vessels in collision and grounding; collision and grounding in Arctic conditions; collision and grounding statistics and measures of the probability of incidents; risk assessment of collision and grounding; measures for reduction of collision and grounding, machine learning methods for the evaluation of probabilistic collision and grounding risk; new designs for improvement of structural resistance to collisions; analysis of ultimate strength of damaged ship structures; design of buffer bows to reduce collision consequences; innovative navigation systems for safer sea transportation, collision between ships and offshore structures; collision between ships and fixed or floating bridges, collision and grounding experiments; properties of materials under impact loadings; residual strength of damaged ships and offshore structures; hull girder response of ships under severe dynamic loadings. The book is aimed at naval architects, marine engineers and scientists.
The ICCGS conferences aim to present state-of-the-art methods for analysis and design against collision and grounding of ships, collisions between ships and icebergs, offshore structures, bridges, submerged tunnels and waterfront structures. Previous conferences were held in: San Francisco, USA in 1996; Copenhagen, Denmark in 2001; Tokyo, Japan in 2004; Hamburg, Germany in 2007; Helsinki, Finland in 2010; Trondheim, Norway in 2013; Ulsan, South Korea in 2016, and Lisbon, Portugal in 2019.
The Proceedings in Marine Technology and Ocean Engineering series is devoted to the publication of proceedings of peer-reviewed international conferences dealing with various aspects of ‘Marine Technology and Ocean Engineering’. The Series includes the proceedings of the following conferences: the International Maritime Association of the Mediterranean (IMAM) Conferences, the Marine Structures (MARSTRUCT) Conferences, the Renewable Energies Offshore (RENEW) Conferences and the Maritime Technology (MARTECH) Conferences, and the Collision and Grounding of Ships and Offshore Structures (ICCGS) conferences. The ‘Marine Technology and Ocean Engineering’ series is also open to new conferences that cover topics on the sustainable exploration and exploitation of marine resources in various fields, such as maritime transport and ports, usage of the ocean including coastal areas, nautical activities, the exploration and exploitation of mineral resources, the protection of the marine environment and its resources, and risk analysis, safety and reliability. The aim of the series is to stimulate advanced education and training through the wide dissemination of the results of scientific research.
