Time-based survival criteria for passenger/ro-ro vessels

Jasionowski, A. and Vassalos, D. and Guarin, L. (2003) Time-based survival criteria for passenger/ro-ro vessels. Marine Technology, 40 (4). pp. 278-287. ISSN 0025-3316

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.
