    Abstract

    Increasing vessel size and complexity creates high uncertainty in flooding situations, and it is challenging for the crew to obtain a complete overview and make fully informed decisions. Time is of the essence, and to optimise decision making and ensure decisions are made on time, we propose adopting the concept of Dynamic Barrier Management through increased use of sensors and analytics. Focus will be placed on emergency responses as their impact on safety has not been quantified in terms of risk reduction to the same extent as for passive design barriers. Based on the idea of increased use of advanced analytics and sensors, particularly flooding sensors, this paper aims to present current research ideas and planned development of a method in which active mitigation measures such as emergency response actions can be quantified in terms of effective risk reduction based on real-time measurements and simulations during an accident, i.e. intelligent quantification of emergency response measures.
