Nonlinear combination of multiple environmental design parameters based on FORM algorithms Leira, Bernt J.


Methods and principles for derivation of joint design parameters for multi-component environmental processes are briefly reviewed. This is frequently referred to as a "load combination problem". The application of so-called design contours for analysis of such load combinations is highlighted. Existing procedures for construction of design contours are summarized, and extension to situations where the characteristic time scales for the different process components are widely different is outlined. Development of tools based on application of "translation processes" is described. Particular examples are given which represent cases with both two and three different load components which are acting simultaneously.
