Ultimate limit state assessment of steel-plated structures including in-service effects

Ultimate limit state analysis is a fundamental assessment for a rationally-based design of a ship or offshore structure. One method to assess the ultimate strength is the finite element method. This research aims to adopt a concise finite element model, assessing the ultimate strength of both intact condition as well as structures considering in-service effects, bridging the gap from the condition of assessment aspect.
