Abstract:

This report provides an introduction to the state-of-the-art in structural reliability theory directed specifically toward the marine industry. Comprehensive probability models are described for the environment, wave cyclic loads acting on a marine structure, its failure mechanics modes, reliability under extreme load, impact strength, system reliability, and fatigue reliability. Application examples of various models are presented including the necessary information required to perform such reliability level of a marine structure is provided as an appendix.
