Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper outlines the study undertaken within the framework of research aiming to address the compound problem of the absolute time available for passenger evacuation on a damaged passenger/RO/RO vessel undergoing large-scale flooding of car deck spaces. Deriving from extensive experimental information and utilizing static equivalent method (SEM) principles, a methodology for predicting ship survival time is proposed that accounts for wave characteristics, water ingress/egress, and vessel survivability. The progress achieved to date is discussed, and aspects needing further investigation are highlighted.
