Final Report - SAFECRAFTS (Safe abandoning of ships, Improvement of current Life Saving Appliances Systems)

Project ID: 506402
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


This is the final report of the SAFECRAFTS project, which was an EU-sponsored research and development project, concerned with evacuation systems on passenger ships. The two main reasons to reconsider ship evacuation systems are:
1. costs associated with ship evacuation systems;
2. the increasing size of cruiser passenger ships.

The report initially refers generally to the project's motivation and objectives and then goes on to explain the work performed. The document contains chapters that in turn elaborate on the assessment method, developed for ship evacuation systems, hardware mechanics and human mechanics, how tests data was obtained for validation purposes and the two novel concepts. Conclusions and a summary of the innovations wrap up the report.
