PROBABILISTIC APPROACH TO SERVICE PERFORMANCE OF SHIPS

A method is proposed for estimating and evaluating the service performance of ships at the initial design stage. The defects involved in the so-called "seamargin," which has been used at the initial design stage of ships for many years, are pointed out. To help deal with this problem, the authors introduce a probabilistic approach to estimating and evaluating the seamargin. The method proposed is applied to evaluating the commonly used seamargin of an existing ore carrier engaged in the service between Japan and Australia.
