Already for some twenty years, the Probdam damage case generator has a feature, called compartment connections, for generating complex intermediate stages of flooding. This tool has been improved so that a multitude of complex intermediate stages will be generated, instead of just a single one previously. This results in a more realistic flooding pattern of compartments through the defined compartment connections. As an example, see the picture below which shows the previous mechanism, as well as the present one. In this example compartment A is initially damaged and compartments B and C are being flooded due to the compartment connections with compartment A.
