Studies on the Probabilistic Model for Ship-Bridge Collisions

Shaowei Zhang


Shocking ship-bridge collisions indicate that there's large space in the previous bridge anti-collision technology research. There are several advantages in the risk-based anti-collision technology of the bridges. Thus the databases such as SpringerLink, Elsevier ScienceDirect and CNKI, the Chinese database, are included to collect literature for the purpose of examining the probabilistic models. Reviewing the current representative models, this paper argues some limitations in the models, such as the questionable applicability of models, the neglected affects of pier turbulent zones as well as some inaccuracies in the mathematical formulations. Accordingly, the paper revises the current models and also addresses increasing the representativeness of samples with sufficient experiments. This paper explores the topic for its potential applications, and aims to make some contribution to the references on the topic so as to popularize and promote the technology in a real sense.
