A method for assessment of the survival time of a ship damaged by collision
Journal article, 2012

Following an interdisciplinary calculation procedure, the chain of events of ship collision, flooding, and loss of stability within given time have been investigated. The method established in the current work concerns the interaction between structural and damage stability computations and has been used to study the influence of various parameters, e.g., significant wave height and size of damage opening on a RoPax-ferry damaged in a collision with a ship of similar size.
