The present title is intended to provide the required introductory technical background to the naval architecture statistics. Each of the subjects discussed within this volume has been treated in detail, and this approach has been applied starting from the very first principle. The main objective of J. Jensen, the author of this volume, was to derive and present readers all required theoretical information for the prediction of the extreme loads and evaluation of the corresponding stresses in the hull girder of the ship. Though some part of the book is dedicated to the reliability analysis, this treatment shall be supplemented with the methods for the detailed evaluation of stress and also for the assessment of the structural strength of the ship's hull prior to the commencement of the reliability analysis. The class societies have issued their regulations covering the structural analysis of a vessel and proper selection of its scantlings. In the past, subject regulations gave formulas for the calculation of the hull thickness and size of the stiffening members. Such empirical regulations must be conservative so that they can be applied to the majority of the vessels. However the regulation have been changed with the advent of the powerful computers. Nowadays, naval architects can perform the structural analysis of the hull using the rational methods that are based on the first principles...
