Construction of the Ship's Technical Failure Model to Assess its Navigational Safety
1 Maritime University of Szczecin, Szczecin, Poland
ABSTRACT: The ship technical failures contribution in overall number of navigational accidents are significantly smaller than those caused by human factor but in safety analysis they cannot be neglected. The paper presents methodology of modeling the technical failures of ships with respect of most important ship systems such as main engine, power generators and steering gear. The repair time is also taken into account. The data for simulation was obtained from analysis of ships statistical data of polish owners. The model could be used mostly in assessment with projecting phase of ship appliances, simulating owner?s economical analysis or generating random events in marine simulators.
