The aim of this work is to accomplish an assessment of the hull girder ultimate strength of intact and damaged double hull tankers. First, the paper presents the validation of the numerical model through comparisons with experimental tests of small-scale box girders. The numerical models are represented by shell elements assuming finite membrane strains and large rotations, considering both geometric and material nonlinearities. Simulation results show very good agreement with experimental tests. Then, a numerical model of a double hull tanker was developed and analyzed in the intact and damaged conditions. Several damage scenarios were investigated.
