The TSB Conducts Simulations at the MSRC8 March 2021
The TSB, a leader in its field, shares knowledge and experience with the international transportation safety community to advance transportation safety worldwide.
Recently, the TSB called on MSRC’s team to conduct part of their investigation into a collision between two bulk carriers. The simulations using two of MSRC’s interactive bridges allowed them to better understand the detailed cause of the accident. Simulating these incidents can also help determine possible best practices to avoid such collisions in the first place.
There are instances when the causes leading to an incident are difficult to determine. In this case, recreating the event – including the type of ships involved, environmental conditions, etc. – using a simulator was most helpful and enlightening.
