Collision Analysis for MS DEXTRA

    Research output: Book/ReportReportResearchpeer-review


    It is a major challenge for the maritime community to develop probability-based procedures for design against collision and grounding events. To quantify the risks involved in ship traffic in specific geographic areas implies that probabilities as well as inherent consequences of various collision and grounding events have to be analysed and assessed.The present paper outlines such a rational procedure for evaluation of the probabilistic distribution of damages caused by collisions against other ships for a specific ship on a specific route.The work described in the paper constitutes a step towards the more long term goal to develop probability-based codes for design against collision and grounding events, similar to the present development towards the use of reliability-based procedures for strength design of ships subjected to the traditional environmental loads.
