Grounding-Induced Sectional Forces and Residual Strength of Grounded Ship Hulls

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    The aim of the present study is to determine the sectional forces induced by ship grounding and also to assess the residual strength of groundedship hulls. An analytical approach is used to estimate the grounding-induced sectional forces of ships. The extent and location of structural damage due to grounding is defined based on the ABS Safe Hull guide. The residual strength of damaged hulls is calculated by using a simple analytical formula. The method is applied to residual strength assessment of a damaged double hull tanker of 38,400 dwt due to grounding.
