The ship hull construction suffers a decrease in strength performance over its life cycle due to corrosion and fatigue. Therefore, the risk of structural failure also rises during the extended service life if maintenance is not performed properly. The budget, on the other hand, limits these activities. As a result, it is critical for ship owners to plan an optimal maintenance program. The idea of this research is to find the best way to keep the hull's structural integrity due to corrosion. A time dependent corrosion model has been developed for failure prediction purposes, based on the historical data of plate thickness reduction. Failure scenarios are carried out on local, global and fatigue strength. This research adopted a semi-quantitative risk assessment along with reliability analysis to give strategic maintenance planning by lowering the risks that would be encountered. Hence, ensuring uninterrupted service of the ship throughout the service life. Finally, this study will be very useful as reference to establish risk informed program to evaluate the risk level of components of hull that guides to adjust inspection intervals without avoiding safety requirements.
