INFLUENCE OF WAVE STEEPNESS ON EXTREME SHIP HULL VERTICAL WAVE BENDING MOMENTS. IN: MARINE TECHNOLOGY V

To maintain minimum safety standards in a ship structural design, it is important to understand the standards applicable for extreme loads allowed. The paper provides an analysis of the influence of the wave steepness on the extreme vertical wave bending moments. The joint probability distribution of significant wave heights and mean zero crossing periods for the North Atlantic is defined by using data from the Global Wave Statistics (GWS). Using extrapolation procedure, the most probable extreme sea states for different return periods are then calculated. The results indicate that the GWS data leads to considerable overestimation of the actual wave steepness. The methodology used in this study allows establishing more realistic extreme vertical wave bending moments.
