A methodology for ultimate strength assessment of ship hull girder accounting for enhanced corrosion degradation modelling

Abstract

The presented work shows a methodology for the ultimate strength assessment of a ship hull, considering enhanced corrosion modelling. The approach is based on the classical Smith method. However, the recent findings regarding the impact of corrosion degradation on ultimate strength are incorporated. To this end, the stress–strain relationships for particular elements composing ship hull cross-section are modified using a specially developed correction factor. The proposed approach is validated with experimental results of the corroded box girders available in the literature, showing very good agreement. Further, a case study of a VLCC tanker ship is presented, and a comparison between contemporary and enhanced corrosion degradation modelling in terms of resulting ultimate strength is presented. The results indicate that the currently used method may significantly overestimate the hull’s structure capacity, especially considering the long exploitation period. Thus, current approaches lead to a non-conservative assessment of the ship hull girder’s ultimate strength, potentially increasing the risk of failure. It is therefore recommended to further investigate the proposed method, especially in the context of risk-based ship design approaches and holistic maritime transportation risk management.
