INTRODUCTION TO STRUCTURAL RELIABILITY THEORY; FINAL REPT
The report provides an introduction to the state-of-the-art in structural reliability theory directed specifically toward the marine industry. Comprehensive probabilistic models are described for the environment wave loads acting on a marine structure, its failure modes, reliability under extreme load, system reliability, and fatigue reliability. Application examples of various models are presented including the necessary information required to perform such reliability analyses. A description of a computer program for calculating the reliability level of a marine structure is provided as an appendix.
