Slamming Collision & Grounding

Slamming, Collision & Grounding






The impact on the bottom of the ship structure as it slams on to the sea surface can induce extremely high loads resulting in  damage to a vessel.

KNUD E. HANSEN A/S is able to evaluate the transient structural dynamic responses of a ship to such slamming.


Collision & grounding

Assessment of the structural arrangements of a ship or floating structure with regard to their integrity and adequacy in the events of collision or grounding.

  • Large displacements, large deformations
  • Materials with non-linear behaviour
  • Failure criteria
