New insights on the sinking of MV Estonia

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The paper presents the latest results from the ongoing research study on the sinking of Estonia, aimed at establishing a verifiable loss scenario by using stateof- the-art numerical and experimental tools to address all pertinent issues: flooding mechanism, coupled flooding-ship-sea dynamics, deterioration of watertight integrity and the abandonment process. The strategy in approaching this problem and the new insights derived from the adopted process are presented leading to early conclusions on the likely loss scenario.
