Numerical and experimental simulations for residual strength analysis of ship structures have recently been investigated in the marine industry. The technology of residual strength analysis is mature enough to assist ocean-going vessels shortly after experiencing a damage incident. The analysis can be used to evaluate the remedial actions necessary to minimize the risk of further damage during stabilization efforts and allow for the eventual transit to a repair facility. In 2010, the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) implemented enhancements to its Rapid Response Damage Assessment (RRDA) program, in particular to the evaluation of residual strength. An integrated software system was developed to quickly and efficiently provide guidance to the ship owner through the utilization of the analysis results.This paper highlights the residual strength analysis results of several actual RRDA cases evaluated in …
