Abstract
    This article is directly related to the well-known super-elements technique, used for rapidly estimating the collision resistance of a ship struck by another one. This paper introduces a new type of super-element for considering properly the case of inclined plating. The first part of the article is devoted to a short presentation of the mathematical developments leading to the crushing resistance. The proposed formula is then validated by numerical simulations on individual components. In the second part of the study, we consider the example of a collided ship having inclined plating elements. A comparison is made between the results provided by numerical simulations and those given by a simplified analytical tool involving the above-mentioned new super-element.
