Abstract

The concept of rainflow comes from the fatigue damage field where it has demonstrated its appropriateness (see Johannesson, 1999). In port engineering, rainflow counting has shown some serious advantages over traditional methods such as the zero-downcrossing method but it is not widely used. This work aims at showing some applications of this technique to problems detected in port operation and reliability after briefly introducing the concept.
