Risk and safety of waterborne transportation
We evaluate the risk and safety of waterborne transportation in a synthetic and systemic manner adopting of state-of-the-art methods and tools (traffic simulation, ship dynamics, Bayesian Networks, experts elicitation), providing the most effective and optimal solutions to improve the safety of the analysed systeWe assess the risk and safety of waterborne transportation in a synthetic and systemic way, using state-of-the-art methods and tools (traffic simulation, ship dynamics, Bayesian networks, expert consultation) and offering the most effective and best solutions to improve the safety of the analysed system.
We provide solutions for the risk-informed decision-making process in the field of waterborne transportation, such as navigation safety analysis, formal safety assessment (FSA), case studies that take into account the antropotechnical dimension of the analysed system.
Modelling fluid dynamics and its interactions with surrounding
numerical modelling of liquid sloshing in partly filled tanks, estimation of ship flooding time and amount due to ship-ship collision and grounding, estimation of bunker spill from the damaged tank due to grounding, estimation of ship squat and resulting UKC by means of numerical method (CFD).
Modelling ship dynamics both in the open and ice-covered waters
ice routing is quite a demanding task, our team members have been involved in two research projects resulting in the development of an ice-routing tool. For more details, the readers are referred to publication 1 and publication 2.
