Cruise Ship Collision Barrier

A new type of collision control barrier is under design and development.  The design brings a very large cruise ship (or any other vessel) gradually to a stop, converting the vessel’s initial kinetic energy to potential energy stored in two structures on either side of the barrier.

Hydrodynamic analysis with OrcaFlex is used to confirm and improve upon closed form analytical solutions developed by STA.

Designs have been developed for cruise ships up to 333m length with gross tonnage 150,000 and velocity 6 knots.
