Risk-based ship design demands advanced tools to predict the safety performance of a given design. Such tools have been developed or refined in the SAFEDOR project covering
• Fast and accurate flooding prediction
• Probabilistic assessment of the strength of ship structures
• Probabilistic assessment of intact stability
• Prevention of collision and grounding events
• Prevention of fire and explosion events
Various procedures have been used to derive the tools: Bayesian network, artificial neural networks, CFD calculations, non-linear time domain calculations and reliability models. The results are validated by model tests and simulations and, where possible, simplified models are derived and calibrated. The procedures have been applied to a variety of ship types including container ships, RoRo ships, tankers and cruise vessels. The aim of the outcome is to provide the ship designer with tools for fast and reliable evaluation of various risks associated with failure of the ship or its subsystems and able to evaluate the effect of various risk-control options. Examples will be given within prevention of collision, grounding and fire events.
