Abstract

Water transport is the proven cheapest and safest mode of transportation but it is the agent of catastrophe in Bangladesh. The overall scenario of Bangladesh inland water transport has been studied. The form of occurrences of maritime accidents in the inland waterways of Bangladesh may be categorized based on mode of failure. Data analysis of major accidents shows that prevention of passenger vessels’ accident will drastically reduce the number of casualties in Bangladesh Inland Waterways where the two repeatedly reported causes of accidents are overloading and inclement weather. Literature review shows that analyses were carried out mostly to investigate the mechanism of capsizing due to violation of “The Inland Shipping Laws and Rules”. To enlighten the roles of professionals like Naval Architects and Law Enforcing Agencies, the reasons behind the accidents in Bangladesh Inland Waterways have been simplified and the nature of actions required for preventing the accidents have been identified from practical point of view. The effect of consideration of overloading condition and higher wind pressure in design has been studied and found that it will have adverse effect on the socio-economical condition of Bangladesh. Role of proper design and construction has been identified by dividing the accidental phenomenon into two phases, capsizing and sinking of vessels.
