involving car carriers and other Ro-Ro passenger ships over the years. These incidents were the catalyst for a number of radical changes to the way that these ships are operated and new design features to improve the stability and safety.

Damage Survival Consideration The floatability of a ship is simply measured by hydrostatic with the help of either lost buoyancy or . The current measure of survivability of a damaged ship in a seaway has been shown to be inaccurate and inadequate practically from the moment of its introduction within the probabilistic framework of damage stability, known commonly as SOLAS [].Some research indicated existence of a safety gap between the new SOLAS and SOLAS90 + Stockholm Agreement (SA []), e.g., [] where in Cited by: 2.

This would seem to indicateFile Size: KB. The work on passenger ship safety has based its guiding philosophy on the premise that the regulatory framework should place more emphasis on the prevention of a casualty from occurring in the first place and that future passenger ships should be designed for improved survivability so that, in the event of a casualty, persons can stay safely on.

The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the probabilistic damage stability of ro-ro ferries with regard to their subdivision based on the probabilistic damage stability concept.

Ro-Ro Passenger Ships (Fig. 1 and 2) A Ro-Ro passenger ship (often also called a Ro-Ro ferry or even just a ferry) is a passenger ship which can carry more than 12 passenger(a ship carrying less than 12 passengers s is by definition a cargo ship) and which has one or more cargo decks for carriage of rolling cargo, such as cars, trucks, lorries.

The most urgent issue was naturally to improve the stability of Ro-Ro/Passenger vessels when in damaged and flooded condition. The work focused on establishing an entirely new risk-based, probabilistic stability standard, aimed at survivability criteria eliminating the probability of new ships with Ro-Ro designs capsizing after large-scale damage.

Although it is merely an alternative to static stability calculations that considers water on deck, a significant number of ferry operators have already chosen the model experiment route to demonstrate safety equivalence.

Research output: Contribution to conference › PaperAuthor: Dracos Vassalos, Andrzej Jasionowski, Luis Guarin. Ocean-going ferries are a combination of Ro-Ro and passenger vessel. The vessel has three layers, the lower machinery space, the vehicle decks and the passenger accommodation.

A large stern door and sometimes also a bow door provide access for the wheeled cargo to the various decks which are connected by ramps. Great care is needed to ensure these doors are watertight and proof against.

The optimisation of high-speed vessels for least powering (lowest fuel consumption) and environmental impact (lowest toxic gas emissions, minimal wave wash impact) was subject of intensive research by the authors in the past years (Zaraphonitis et al., Author: Sotiris Skoupas, George Zaraphonitis, Apostolos Papanikolaou.
