The objective of this paper is to present three probabilistic methods useful in estimating the severity of extreme roll responses in short crested irregular head seas. Underlying assumptions are examined and strengths and potential weaknesses are identified. The methods reviewed here are the statistical extrapolation of extreme value distributions, the Envelope Peaks Over Threshold method (EPOT), and the Design Loads Generator (DLG) approach.
