Mechanics of Ship Grounding

    Research output: Book/ReportBook


    In these notes first a simplified mathematical model is presented for analysis of ship hull loading due to grounding on relatively hard and plane sand, clay or rock sea bottoms. In a second section a more rational calculation model is described for the sea bed soil reaction forces on the sea bottom. Finally, overall hull failure is considered first applying a quasistatic analysis model and thereafter a full dynamic model.
