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 utilising 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.
