The ships and offshore structures are exposed to inherently the risk of fire and explosion. These fire and explosion, accident caused by grave consequences not only to the ships and offshore platforms on the sea but the environment all mankind. The aim of this paper is to focus on an optimization of water deluge and mist spray system locations subjected to jet on the ships and offshore platforms. A trustworthy set of fire scenarios is identified and classified using probabilistic sampling methods calling for Latin Hyper Sampling. These events of fire are numerically calculated for selected scenarios by the computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) code using a KFX. The Water Deluge Location Index (WLI) is then calculated by using the frequency and consequence of fire scenarios. And then, WLI are utilized to prioritize the optimal locations of water deluge and mist spray systems. The recommended methodology believes that can increase to certainties in the design procedure of unreliability and can regard the cost-effectiveness of safety design.
