Abstract
    The last two years Schelde Naval Shipbuilding delivered the designs for the crashworthy side structure of four inland waterway tankers. The ships, for the Dutch owner Chemgas Shipping, are designed to carry liquefied gas products on the inland waterways. The design of crashworthy tankers for inland waterway transport of dangerous goods has a regulatory benefit in the sense that larger cargo tanks are allowed. In constructing a crashworthy hull structure and integrate it into the complete ship, the design takes special design considerations for connections of bulkheads, decks, tank supports and other connected construction parts. The paper describes how the Y-shaped crashworthy hull structure can be fitted into a standard ship design that can be both a single and a double hull ship.
