RINA Part B Chapter 2

Number and Arrangement of Transverse Watertight Bulkheads

Number of watertight bulkheads
All ships, in addition to complying with the requirements of [1.1.2], are to have at least the
following transverse watertight bulkheads
! one collision bulkhead
! one after peak bulkhead
! two bulkheads forming the boundaries of the machinery space in ships with machinery
amidships, and a bulkhead forward of the machinery space in ships with machinery aft.
"n the case of ships with an electrical propulsion plant, both the generator room and the
engine room are to be enclosed by watertight bulkheads.
Additional bulkheads
#or ships not required to comply with subdivision regulations, transverse bulkheads adequately
spaced and in general not less in number than indicated in $ab 1 are to be fitted.
Additional bulkheads may be required for ships having to comply with subdivision or damage
stability criteria %see &art ' for the different types of ships(.
Collision bulkhead
Arrangement of ollision bulkhead
A collision bulkhead is to be fitted which is to be watertight up to the freeboard deck. $his
bulkhead is to be located at a distance from the forward perpendicular #&)) of not less than *
per cent of the length ))) of the ship or 1+ m, whichever is the less, and not more than , per
cent of ))).
-here any part of the ship below the waterline e.tends forward of the forward perpendicular,
e.g. a bulbous bow, the distances, in metres, stipulated in [2.1.1] are to be measured from a
point either
! at the midlength of such e.tension, or
! at a distance 1,* per cent of the length ))) of the ship forward of the forward
perpendicular, or
! at a distance / metres forward of the forward perpendicular0 whichever gives the
smallest measurement.
$he bulkhead may have steps or recesses provided they are within the limits prescribed in
[2.1.1] or [2.1.2]. 1o door, manhole, ventilation duct or any other opening is to be fitted in this
$he 2ociety may, on a case by case basis, accept a distance from the collision bulkhead to the
forward perpendicular #&)) greater than the ma.imum specified in [2.1.1] and [2.1.2], provided
that subdivision and stability calculations show that, when the ship is in upright condition on full
load summer waterline, flooding of the space forward of the collision bulkhead will not result in
any part of the freeboard deck becoming submerged, or in any unacceptable loss of stability.
-here a long forward superstructure is fitted, the collision bulkhead is to be e.tended
weathertight to the ne.t deck above the freeboard deck. $he e.tension need not be fitted
directly above the bulkhead below provided it is located within the limits prescribed in [2.1.1] or
[2.1.2] with the e.emption permitted by [2.1.3] and the part of the deck which forms the step is
made effectively weathertight.
-here bow doors are fitted and a sloping loading ramp forms part of the e.tension of the
collision bulkhead above the freeboard deck, the part of the ramp which is more than 2,/ m
above the freeboard deck may e.tend forward of the limit specified in [2.1.1] or [2.1.2] $he ramp
is to be weathertight over its complete length.
$he number of openings in the e.tension of the collision bulkhead above the freeboard deck is
to be restricted to the minimum compatible with the design and normal operation of the ship. All
such openings are to be capable of being closed weathertight.
