Probabilistic methods enable the modelling of the uncertainties associated with the integrity assessment of structures containing defects to be taken into account. This paper presents a critical review of recent developments in the probabilistic modelling of the uncertainties associated with fatigue and fracture reliability assessment. A number of probabilistic models for the principal parameters in the S-N curve, fatigue crack growth functions and fracture analysis are presented and discussed with particular emphasis on the identification of future needs for the development of suitable code procedures for offshore structures.
