Grahic Jump Location
Four main categories of scenarios that may lead to grounding damage. The scenarios are divided into soft and hard grounding and the event being either powered or drifting.
Grahic Jump Location
The principle of scaling damage statistics for powered grounding damage on hard rock
Grahic Jump Location
Typical setup for cutting experiments
Grahic Jump Location
Probability density function for position of the front of the damage along the length of the ship. Unity is at the forward perpendicular (130 casualties).
Grahic Jump Location
Location of center of damage. Unity is at the forward perpendicular (130 casualties).
Grahic Jump Location
Location of front of damage. Unity is at the forward perpendicular (130 casualties).
Grahic Jump Location
Relation between impact kinetic energy and amount of damage (46 casualties)
Grahic Jump Location
Pdf for impact velocity for “small” (41 cases) and “large” (48 cases) ships
Grahic Jump Location
CDF for impact velocity made non dimensional by service ship speed for “small” (41 cases) and “large” (48 cases) ships
Grahic Jump Location
CDF for damage width divided by ship breadth for “small” (47 cases) and “large” ships (45 cases)
Grahic Jump Location
CDF for vertical penetration divided by ship draft for “small” (33 cases) and “large” ships (23 cases)
Grahic Jump Location
Relative damage length as function of ship length for 130 casualties
Grahic Jump Location
CDF for damage length made non dimensional by ship length for “small” (65 cases) and “large” ships (65 cases)
Grahic Jump Location
Ratio of relative damage lengths as a function of the percentile level (“large” over “small” ships)
