Stochastic Procedures for Extreme Wave Load Predictions- Wave Bending Moment in Ships

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


A discussion of useful stochastic procedures for stochastic wave load problems is given, covering the range from slightly linear to strongly non-linear (bifurcation) problems. The methods are: Hermite transformation, Critical wave episodes and the First Order Reliability Method (FORM). The procedures will be illustrated by results for the extreme vertical wave bending moment in ships.
