Reliability of Marine Structures
The Reliability of Marine Structures (RMS) Program operated out of the Blume Center from 1988 to 2002, leading advanced research in marine structures behavior and reliability. The Program combined post-M.S. graduate study with basic research in structural reliability applications. These applications initially ranged from the modelling of joint ocean environmental processes (wind-wave-current), through the modelling and analysis of the resulting hydrodynamic loads and gross responses, to the development of probability-based design codes. The research was funded both by federal and industry affiliate sponsors.
