Probabilistic rules-based optimal design of ro-ro passenger ships

Objective

Ro-Ro passenger ship safety has to be improved, as recent ship disasters with significant loss of lives imply. The ROROPROB project aims at improving safety by developing and implementing a new formalised design methodology for optimal Ro-Ro passenger ship subdivision. The procedure is based on the probalistic concept-based damage stability regulations. Proper optimisation tools will be used to reduce the required computational and design effort. The project will be initiated with an updating of a technical Ro-Ro passenger ship database, followed by an in-depth study of robustness of the probalistic rules-based damage stability approach. The optimisation problem for ship's subdivision will be set up and the design solution procedure will be implemented by application of a new software design system, which will be extensively validated. Parameter studies and practical ship design demonstrations will be carried out.
