Investigation of ship collision with floating pier structures
MetadataShow full item record
This study investigated the collision of ships with floating pier structures. The nature of the collision phenomenon is complex, and the understanding of it has developed through the modelling of offshore structures. ABAQUS software was used to investigate the collision phenomenon. The interaction between the ship and structural system was modelled, and the stress distribution both at the time of collision and afterwards was observed and modelled. The strain energy absorption by different structural parts was calculated and comparisons were made.
