ST.EX.OM — A Statistical Package for the Prediction of Extreme Values

  • J. Labeyrie
Conference paper


The estimation of extreme statistics of the environment (wind, waves, current) and structure behaviour parameters is a preliminary step which is proving crucial in a modern approach of structural safety and reliability. For example, design criteria for offshore structures are based on occurence probabilities of extreme loads.
