The Damaged Ship IV 2018


Recent incidents at sea have shown that investigations and understanding of the behaviour of damaged ships are as important as ever. Significant progress 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 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.

Human Factors in Ship Design & Operation 2011


This conference aims to bring together international specialists and professionals including designers, ship operators, seafarers, equipment manufacturers and regulators to highlight how an improved understanding of human factors can reduced costs and improve safety.

Warship 2008


This conference, the 28th in RINA's successful Warship series, will look at 'Naval Submarines'. Submarines are among the most complex of engineering products, comparable in complexity with aerospace projects such as the space shuttle.  To design, manufacture and support them in service requires a sophisticated industrial base and the willingness to incur the long term cost of ownership.
