In this paper, it starts by providing a description of the scenarios of damages that can be found in the various accidental events. Based on a traditional standardized approach for calculating longitudinal strength of ships, an improved method for longitudinal strength of damaged ships, which can be applied to any traditional type of ships, is presented in next section. The variation of loads in damaged ships is related to the effects of the ingress of water with the consequences of changing the ship displacement, a non-symmetric floating body, and the load case of compartments before damage, etc. The computing methods used in this paper allow for research on corresponding applications. Using this computer program, a few case studies are carried out and the results are discussed.
