Abstract: One of the situations that may cause severe damage and even sinking of bulk bulkheads is the destruction of the hatch cover and as a consequence of the ship’s waterlogging. This destruction may be due to heavy loads on the page, such as shock wave loads. Considering this, it is very important to investigate the possibility of structural failure in this situation. In this paper, using a MATLAB programming language developed for the FORM method, we have tried to summarize the reliability analysis on two models of bulk carrier storage models. To achieve this, first, the algorithm of the method of expression, and then the limit state function of this failure state and its components are described, then the probability of failure of these two models of the storage compartment is calculated.
