LOAD PREDICTION AND STRESS ANALYSIS IN RELATION TO FATIGUE OF SHIPS AND OFFSHORE STRUCTURES

In order to permit safer and more efficient design of both conventional and unconventional ships, rational structural design methods, including improved structural analysis techniques together with accurate statistical means of wave load prediction, are currently under active development in both the civil and military ship design fields. The purpose of this paper is to review such methods briefly and discuss their suitability for application to offshore installations with particular reference to fatigue.
