The safe operation of ships is a high priority task in order to protect the ship, the personnel, the cargo and the wider environment. A methodology for the rational and reliable assessment of the structural integrity and thus safety of ships and their cargos at sea has been developed. Central to this methodology is a set of mathematical models, the conditions of their use, and the links between them, which were designed to improve the predictions of wave impact loads acting on ships. The models, together with the methodology of their use, were utilised by the ship certification industry bringing benefits through recognised quality assurance systems and certification.
