Typical problems linked to structural safety are loads and load effects, motion characteristics, global and local hull strength, stability, anchoring and positioning.

The remit includes anchor loads, loads on structures in the presence of wave-borne lumps of ice (growlers), improved models for icing (atmospheric and from seaspray) and the acquisition of knowledge on crack propagation and fractures in materials at temperatures below -20⁰C. This is to be viewed in the light of knowledge-based industry initiatives, research, education and expertise concerning the High North.
