First principles design for damage resistance against capsize

First principles design for damage resistance against capsize

Objective

Unlike many other aspects of RoRo vessels design, which have undergone continuous progress towards new technologies, safety still lags behind. Traditionally handled with strict compliance to rules and regulations, the survivability of this type of vessels to damage at sea has proven dramatically insufficient. The goal of this project is to develop and validate by demonstration, an innovative design methodology based on risk assessment approach which employs first principles models representative of the physics involved in the flooding process. This tool will allow practising naval architects to realistically predict, measure and improve the level of safety of a given RoRo design and therefore it will allow total integration of survivability in the design process as a regular design parameter.
