Project Description


  • Demonstrate that evaluation of new design concepts for collision resistant side walls of ship can be evaluated successfully with aid of numerical simulations, thus allowing reliable evaluation and shorter times to market.

M2i Project:

  • Accurate finite element technology for collision processes, material models for deformation and failure and comparison with experimental results

Industrial benefits:

  • Collision resistance of side wall doubled by increasing the energy absorption capacity
  • Transportation cost reduced with 10%
