It is common practice to employ direct calculation procedures for spectral based fatigue assessment. Numerical codes are used to compute direct hydrodynamic loads. There are several complexities and nuances associated with application of loads on finite element (FE) model. It is a computationally expensive task especially when a large number of cases need to be analyzed (for e.g. spectral fatigue analysis). The present paper outlines an approach to evaluate the stress transfer function based on the direct application of moments (vertical bending, horizontal bending and torsional moments) computed using a frequency-domain based sea-keeping code. Multi-point constraint (MPC) method is utilized for application of bending moment. The structural responses computed using direct application of the bending moments (Method 1) and the panel pressures (Method 2) are compared. The evaluated stress transfer function is used for spectral fatigue analysis. Overall, the present study provides a methodology for spectral fatigue assessment using direct application of bending moments.
