Collision and Grounding of Ships and Offshore Structures

Edited By Jorgen Amdahl, Sören Ehlers, Bernt Johan Leira Copyright 2013

    Collision and Grounding of Ships and Offshore Structures contains the latest research results and innovations presented at the 6th International Conference on Collision and Grounding of Ships and Offshore Structures (Trondheim, Norway, 17-19 June 2013). The book comprises contributions made in the field of numerical and analytical analysis of collision and grounding consequences for ships and offshore structures in various scenarios, such as narrow passageways and arctic conditions including accidental ice impact. A wide range of topics is covered:

    - Recent large-scale collision experiments

    - Innovative concepts and procedures to improve the crashworthiness of ships and offshore structures

    - Ship collisions with offshore renewable energy installations

    - Residual strength of damaged ship structures as well as mitigation measures for the consequences of such accidents

    - Statistical analysis of collision and grounding incidents to analyse and predict the probability of their occurrence

    - Developments concerning rational rules for structural design to avoid collisions

    - Grounding actions comprising the use of general risk assessment methodologies

    Collision and Grounding of Ships and Offshore Structures contributes significantly to increasing the safety and reliability of seaborne transport and operations, and will be useful to academics and engineers involved in marine technology-related research and the marine industry.
