PROBABILISTIC DESIGN FOR SHIP HULL STRUCTURAL STRENGTH
Conventional methods of designing for hull strength make use of accumulated experience, essentially expressed in the form of semi-empirical formulae and safety factors. With a new ship type, the resultant lack of "accumulated experience" on vessels of similar size and function makes it prudent to investigate new approaches to longitudinal strength design in an attempt to reduce the uncertainties. The probabilistic approach employs statistical methods to quantify strength of structure and magnitude of imposed loads.
