Reliability analysis of single tubular joints and offshore platforms with tubular joints is" presented. The failure modes considered are yielding, punching, buckling and fatigue failure. Element reliability as well as systems reliability approaches are used and illustrated by several examples. Finally, optimal design of tubular.joints with reliability constraints is discussed and illustrated by an example.
