Learning outcomes

  • To demonstrate detailed knowledge of the basic principles and methods which are used to describe stochastic processes with the emphasis on the applications to sealoads and motions of marine systems.
  • To show detailed knowledge of statistical methods and of the basis for description of stochastic processes. This includes detailed knowledge of the topics given in the academic content.
  • To be able to make simple calculations of stochastic loads on and responses of marine structures.
  • To document mastering of the concepts and terminology which are used in statistical methods and for description of stochastic processes and how this is applied in marine technology.
