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

  • Advanced Strength Analysis
  • Advanced Load Analysis
  • Probabilistic Models of Loads
  • Limit State Design
  • Reliability of Intact and Damaged Ships
  • Reliability of Fixed, Floating and Submerged Structures
  • Reliability of Wind and Wave Á Tidal Energy Structures and Devices
  • Reliability of Moorings and Risers
