About the Conference

THE CONFERENCE WILL BRING TOGETHER RESEARCHERS, PRACTITIONERS TO ADDRESS THE SAFETY AND RELIABILITY ISSUES AS APPLICABLE TO DIFFERENT STAGES IN THE ANALYSIS, DESIGN CONSTRUCTION AND IN-SERVICE LIFE OF MARINE STRUCTURES SUCH AS SHIP, OFFSHORE, SUBMERGED STRUCTURES AND THE RENEWABLE ENERGY STRUCTURES. THIS WILL INVOLVE ADVANCED ANALYSIS BOTH FOR STRENGTH AND LOAD MODEL IN ORDER TO ESTABLISH SAFETY LEVEL BOTH FOR DETERMINISTIC MODEL (WSD METHOD) AND FOR RELIABILITY BASED DESIGN (LRFD METHOD). ONE OF THE AIMS OF THE DESIGN SHOULD BE TO ACHIEVE ADEQUATE BUT NOT EXCESSIVE LEVEL OF SAFETY WHICH CAN BE SATISFIED THROUGH RELIABILITY BASED METHOD AND THIS TAKES INTO ACCOUNT UNCERTAINTIES OF DESIGN VARIABLES. CURRENT MODERN CODES ARE TRYING TO PROVIDE DESIGN PROCEDURES ON LRFD FORMAT ALTHOUGH NO EXPLICIT RELIABILITY ANALYSIS IS DONE TO ARRIVE THESE PARTIAL SAFETY FACTORS. THIS CONFERENCE WILL DEAL WITH ALL THESE ISSUES AND SEE HOW THESE TECHNIQUES ARE APPLIED TO VARIOUS TYPES OF MARINE STRUCTURES.

Conference Themes

The various themes are:

  • ADVANCED STRENGTH ANALYSIS
  • ADVANCED LOAD ANALYSIS
  • PROBABILISTIC MODELS OF LOADS LIMIT STATE DESIGN
  • RELIABILITY OF INTACT & DAMAGED SHIPS
  • RELIABILITY OF FIXED, FLOATING AND SUBMERGED STRUCTURES
  • RELIABILITY OF WIND & WAVE & TIDAL ENERGY STRUCTURES & DEVICES
  • RELIABILITY OF MOORING & RISERS
  • FATIGUE, FRACTURE & CORROSION
  • STOCHASTIC COMPUTATIONAL MECHANICS
  • RELIABILITY-BASED DESIGN OPTIMIZATION SYSTEMS RELIABILITY
  • PROBABILISTIC DETERIORATION ANALYSIS
  • PROBABILISTIC MULTI-SCALE MATERIAL MODELLING
  • INTELLIGENT USE OF MONITORED DATA
  • LIFE-CYCLE ASSESSMENT AND OPTIMIZATION
  • FAILURE CONSEQUENCE ANALYSIS
  • RISK INTEGRATION AND CONTROL
  • SHIP COLLISION AND STRUCTURAL IMPACT
  • ULTIMATE AND RESIDUAL STRENGTH
  • STRUCTURAL RESPONSE UNDER EXTREME LOADING

The Programme will include invited papers whose aim will be to present the main issues relevant to the above themes and application areas, thus providing additional impetus for an open exchange of ideas.
