The long-term predictions of vertical wave bending moment are made for the extreme design values on ship. As part of the INCASS (Inspection Capabilities for Enhanced Ship Safety), this paper carried out a short-term estimation of wave loads for 4250 TEU container ship by the hydrodynamic analysis software of ANSYS-Aqwa based on three-dimensional linear potential flow theories. Based on the short-term predic-tion and the wave statistic of the North Atlantic Ocean, a long-term prediction of vertical wave bending mo-ment is obtained. The results are required and processed to the Decision Support System (DSS), in order to assist to monitoring and risk analysis for ship structure and machinery the towards enhanced and efficient ship operations (Konstantinos, et al., 2015). The prediction values also provide a reference for the trend analysis of the past record signals (Ulrik Dam et al, 2015) for evaluation of longitudinal strength of container ship.
