Recent incidents at sea have shown that investigations and understanding of the behaviour of damaged ships are as important as ever. Significant process has been made over the last 10 years but there still remain numerous scientific and practical challenges.

After any major accident it is imperative to rapidly quantify the damage, assess damage stability and the residual strength of a vessel. Damage stability appraisal must also consider the likelihood of progressive flooding, the effect of the mass and motion of flood water within the vessel, capsizing probability and effect of waves on stability. There is a need to consider both the global strength capability of the ship structure and the local residual strength of damaged and buckled plating and the effect of flooding on internal structure.

Following on from the successes of two previous RINA Damaged Ship conferences; this event will focus on the assessment and analysis of stability, strength, sea worthiness of a ship damaged by collision, grounding, structural failure, fire or explosion. It will also consider procedures to minimise risks for passengers, crew, ship, and environment and to develop safe countermeasures including sequences for transferring crew, offloading cargo, and ballast water, for salvage operations.
