Various accidents such as grounding, collision, fire, and explosion commonly occur on operating ships. The structural damage caused by such accidents is often accompanied by casualties and serious pollution. Therefore, an accidental risk-based approach that is in line with the goal-based standard of the International Maritime Organization is being developed in the literature. In the present paper, the residual ultimate longitudinal strength versus grounding damage diagram (R-D diagram) for container ships is established as per the method of Paik et al. [1]. The proposed R-D diagram should be useful for defining acceptance damage criteria and making rapid salvage plans or rescue schemes for container ships that have sustained a grounding accident.
