  • The support for using the cognitive reliability and error analysis method (CREAM) for marine accident investigation

    On a ship's bridge, the deck officer who has the duty of navigating and keeping watch is known as the officer of the watch (OOW). Many of the causes of accidents relate not only to the OOW's knowledge and capability, but to his or her cognitive process. The cognitive reliability and error analysis method (CREAM) is a technique for analyzing human reliability. The CREAM organizes interactions between humans and the environment by using the human-technology- organization triad. The CREAM defines common performance conditions (CPCs), the dependencies between them, and the links between antecedents and consequences, thus clarifying the background factors that affect human performance. This method has mainly been used in the nuclear industry, but since conditions change across domains, CPCs apply differently to other domains. Based on the considerations above, we have adapted CPCs to maritime collision accidents, and administered a questionnaire to OOWs for the purpose of quantifying the dependency and priority of CPCs. This paper introduces the support for the retrospective analysis of marine accidents.

  • Offshore accidents and effects on their performances

    Marine accidents are some of the risk sources on human life at sea and also make the founded budget to be sank to the deep. In order to prevent these damages and losses, it is necessary to do a proper understanding of these accidents. Offshore systems as of the main parts of ocean structures and their accidents are considered here in this paper. From 1975 some data showing offshore accidents are captured in the worldwide offshore accident databank (WOAD), which are the main data bank to be used in this study. These data are about offshore damages and collapses due to fires, blowout, anchor failure, capsize, explosion, etc. The main scope of the study is on fixed offshores, named jackets which are used in the Persian Gulf for oil production. Fire is considered here and a mathematical model for fire distribution is derived. Heat transfer within the structure in three different ways including: radiation, convection, and conduction will be considered. Surrounded environmental winds, waves, earthquakes and others strengthen the heat flux and its effects on the structure. In this research a jacket named Forozan, located in the Persian Gulf, loaded under gravitational effects of the fixed parts and moving parts, while considering environmental like winds, waves, etc is considered, if fire is distributed at the main top deck. Finite element analysis, using ANSYS is performed to derive thermal stresses and strains in the structural members of the jacket, and the results will show how to modify the weak point in the structure to prevent collapses and damages.

  • Effects of overlaid navigational information on seascape on ship crew performance

    Many of marine accidents cause by the perception error during navigation watch. We developed a new navigation support system which expected to decrease cognitive workload of officer of the watch. The support system can project marine radar information onto head up display combiner which is placed on a compass. An experiment was carried out in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the support system. Seventeen subjects participated in the experiment who is asked to navigate vessel at PC-based ship bridge simulator. Eye fixation duration for under navigation task was measured as index for efficiency of the support system. As a result of this experiment, the statistical significance could not be found. However, there has been shown to be tendency towards extend the fixation duration for navigation watch with the support system as increase collision risk.

  • Questionnaire Survey for Adapting Common Performance Conditions to Marine Accidents

    An officer of the watch (OOW) is a qualified person with the knowledge and capabilities required to safely navigate a ship. However, many collisions occur that are caused by human errors in navigation. Eighty-four percent of collision accidents are caused by inadequate lookout. It is estimated that such accidents can be prevented if the OOW performs fully to his or her knowledge and capabilities. Many factors can reduce the OOW's reliability, so it can be difficult to specify the cause of an accident. If the cause of an accident can be specified, efficient measures can be taken. This study utilizes a human reliability analysis method to analyze marine accidents. The cognitive reliability and error analysis method (CREAM) divides background factors into nine common performance conditions (CPCs). However, the manner in which CREAM is used in the nuclear industry is not applicable to the maritime domain since the working conditions are very different. To facilitate using CREAM to analyze marine accidents, we sought advice from specialists about redefining the CPCs and their descriptions. We then adapted the dependencies between the CPCs to marine accidents based on a questionnaire survey administered to OOWs. This paper reports the results of the questionnaire survey. In addition, we discuss the dependencies between the CPCs adapted for marine accident analysis. These results confirm the essence and character of the maritime industry.

  • Human Factor Analysis on Marine Accidents Based on Attribute Reduction

    A new method based on attribute reduction, which is developed from rough set theory, is introduced to dig out main factors leading to human errors in marine accidents. The basic theory of rough set is mentioned, and a method of attribute deduction based on genetic algorithm is introduced. Experiment based on RSES, a rough set analysis tool, is implemented on a data-set which includes 30 factors which may be lead to Look-out Missing, a common human error on board. Reasonable result, an accurate set of main factors, is received after the implementation of the experiment and a conclusion that attribute reduction is a reliable and convenient way to generalize main factors lead to human errors in marine accident is made finally according to the experiment result.

  • Development of a method for marine accident analysis with bridge simulator

    The ship operation is system of systems consisted of various systems such as ship management, navigational support, cargo handling and port facility. The marine accidents cause considerable damage to logistics and environment. So, it is effective to ensure the safety of the ship operation. The purpose of this paper is to propose an analytical method for marine accident analysis with the bridge simulator and to confirm the effectiveness of the method. By this analytical method, it has shown to find out the most important factor in navigational watch to avoid marine accident.

  • Ship handling research facility

    A major new ship handling research capability will be embodied in the Maritime Research Simulator now being built by the Maritime Administration. Human engineering research related to ship handling will be possible to a degree not previously available. The relationships of operator action, ship dynamics, instrumentation, bridge crew duty assignments, and the outside world environment (including harbor configuration, visibility, other ship traffic, wind, tides, and current) can be evaluated. Simulation permits experimentation under controlled operating conditions, including: simulated hazardous conditions, convenient scheduling, and quality controlled data collection. Simulation also permits conducting experiments in conditions which would not be feasible in the real world. For example, ships not yet built may be "operated", ship channels may be rerouted, aids to navigation may be repositioned, unconventional traffic rules may be placed in effect, high speed ships may be mixed with slower traffic, relocation of piers, docks, or shore terminals may be speedily arranged. In all these circumstances, the relationship of bridge and supporting accommodations to operator capabilities and limitations may be evaluated. Larger, less maneuverable ships, increased ship traffic density in and around major seaports, and long cruise durations are all thought to be factors in the high incidence of marine accidents. Ship handling accidents, i.e., strandings, groundings, and collisions, are the most frequent types of accidents and are a prime object of research to be conducted in the Maritime Research Simulator. In addition to problems in safety and reliability of cargo delivery, the simulator can be used in solving other maritime problems such as those related to harbor design, ship handling efficiency, new or proposed shipboard equipment, regulatory matters, and vessel traffic systems.

  • Notice of Retraction: Study on the Frequency Prediction of Marine Accidents for Ship on the Sea

    The quantitative method is used to predict the frequency of ship marine accidents. Taking Liutiaogou port of Huludao as an example, mathematical models are separately established to calculate the frequency of the collision and grounding accidents. This model can make good prediction on the accidents types and distribution of the relative areas and can also provide theoretical basis on vessel security management.

  • Development of a method for marine accident analysis with concepts of PRA

    There are a lot of marine accidents caused by human factors. The experiment using bridge simulator is effective for analysis of the human factor. However, the analytical approach for the navigational behavior by the experiment with bridge simulator has not been established yet. The purpose of this paper is to propose an analytical approach by introducing concepts of Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA) and the experiment using bridge simulator that can find out the important factor to avoid marine accidents. As a result of experiments and the analysis, it is clearly important that the officers judged the necessary of the constant lookout for dangerous targets. Finding the important factor of avoiding marine accident, this analytical approach is effective.
