DNVGL-RP-C204 Design against accidental loads

Recommended practice

This recommended practice (RP) deals with design to maintain the load-bearing function of the structures during accidental events. The overall goal of the design against accidental loads is to achieve a system where the main safety functions of the installation are not impaired.

The RP has been developed for general world-wide application. Governmental legislation may include requirements in excess of the provisions of this recommended practice depending on type, location and intended service of the unit/installation.
