One of the objectives of the eSAFE project was to develop a holistic probabilistic methodology, as well as an associated NAPA software functionality, for assessing post-damage ship survivability combining, through a sound and consistent generalised approach, collision, bottom grounding and side grounding/contact damages. This paper provides a summary overview of some main outcomes in this respect, namely: the development of a non-zonal approach for collision starting from, and extending, the SOLAS frameworks; the development and critical analysis of alternative approaches for considering the different attained indices from collision, bottom grounding and side grounding/contact damages; the practical implementation and testing of the framework.
