Analyses of Ship Collisions: Determination of Longitudinal Extent of Damage and Penetration
MetadataShow full item record
SIMCOL is sufficiently fast to be applied to thousands of collision cases as is required for a probabilistic analysis. The following specific tasks were completed using SIMCOL in support of this project:
Â· Completed the development of SIMCOL Version 3.0 including: 1) Deformable Bow sub model 2) Implementation and validation of theory for the determination of energy absorbed in longitudinal extent of damage. Â· Developed the capability to model collision events using LSDYNA. Â· Validated Virginia Tech LSDYNA ship collision modeling procedure. Â· Validated SIMCOL using real collision data, and probabilistic collision data for penetrating collisions.
