Investigation of ship collision with floating pier structures
Amin Chegenizadeh, Behzad Ghadimi and Hamid Nikraz

    This study investigated the collision of ships withfloating pier structures. The nature of the collision phenomenon is complex, and the understanding of it has developed through the modelling of offshore structures. ABAQUS software was used to investigate the collision phenomenon. The interaction between the ship and structural system was modelled, and the stress distribution both at thetime of collision and afterwardswasobserved and modelled. The strain energy absorption by different structural partswas calculated and comparisonswere made.
