The Loads Committee of the International Ship and Offshore Structures Congress (ISSC) critically reviews the state of the art of environmental and operational loads. Amongst these, elements more relevant to the offshore industry will be presented in this paper. These comprise wave-induced loads, including linear and nonlinear methods, multi-body interactions, slamming, green water, sloshing and rogue waves, cables and risers, vortex-induced vibrations, ice loads, fatigue loading and, verification and validation.
