Abstract

Although there have been few collisions between ships and offshore installations, the grave consequences of such a collision has provoked the study of the probabil- ity of collision worldwide. A theoretical study is undertaken on the assessment of risk of collision in this paper. The causes of collision and the models of evaluating the risk collision are reviewed, which are then followed by some discussions on modelling human error and mariners' behaviour of collision avoidance decision making briefly. Finally, some suggestions on reducing such a risk are proposed. 2 Introduction In the past twenty years, experts and scholars in various major shipping and offshore oil and gas exploring states have studied widely the risk of collision between ships and offshore installatio
