STRUCTURAL DESIGN-SAFETY AND RELIABILITY CONSIDERATIONS BEHIND THE DEVELOPMENT OF CLASSIFICATION SOCIETY REQUIREMENTS
Three major aspects of technical safety are pertinent in ship design, namely the safety of human life, the pollution of the environment and the cost (in the widest sense) of sea transportation. In this paper particular emphasis is placed upon demonstrating the philosophy and methods employed by a classfication society in order to develop a set of Rules which will guide ship-building to an acceptable and reasonably optimal safety level. Some comments are offered on developments in the practical use of probabilistic design methods.
