This paper highlights the wide range of applications for probabilistic analyses in structural integrity and design. Firstly, some background is given to introduce the basic principles which underpin a probabilistic approach and some aspects of its historical development. A discussion of the main benefits and attributes
of probabilistic analyses follows, and a direct comparison with conventional deterministic design is made. Thereafter, five main modes of application are presented, and their individual objectives discussed. Through examining various case studies, the different utilities of a probabilistic approach are highlighted.
Finally, some important considerations are discussed in terms of adopting probabilistic approaches for future implementation.
