PIAS’ Probdam module updated with SOLAS 2020 requirements

On June 15, 2018 IMO adopted resolution MSC.421(98), titled “Amendments to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea”. With respect to probabilistic damage stability, this encompasses:

  • A change of the required subdivision index for passenger vessels.
  • Changes in the formula for the probability of survival, applicable to damage cases that involve a ro-ro space.

PIAS module Probdam has been extended with these changes and is currently being tested. From July 1, 2019 this functionality is available for all users of Probdam.
