Innovative Structural Designs of Tankers Against Ship Collisions and Grounding: A Recent State-of-the-Art Review
Abstract:The double-hull design concept is one of the effective ways for oil pollution prevention during collision and grounding accidents of oil tankers. Arguably there might be better design alternatives which improve the structural performance of ships against collision and grounding when compared to the thus far well accepted double-hull concept, or even a double hull that is better in comparison to what is being routinely achieved by today's design methods. In this paper, a recent state-of-the-art review is undertaken on the literature related to more rational tanker structural design procedures and some innovative design concepts for tanker structures against ship collisions and grounding.
