The Formal Safety Assessment (FSA) carried out in LASH FIRE requires the development and quantification of a holistic risk model describing the fire growth and response in ro-ro spaces. The objective is to compute the risk levels in term of life, cargo and ship loss for the three generic ships, as well as to assess the impact of each solution proposed by the D&D WPs on these safety levels.

The FIRESAFE risk model structure was adapted to LASH FIRE’s scope and objectives, to take into account ro-ro cargo ships and vehicle carriers, as well as some failure modes not yet present in the FIRESAFE risk model but necessary for the study of proposed solutions. Several types of risk models were also analyzed, and their strengths and weaknesses were described.
