In this paper, the wave loads of a semi-submersible platform is calculated by the deterministic design wave method and the stochastic design wave method based on the rules established by ABS and DNV classification society respectively. Then, the yielding strength, buckling strength and fatigue strength of important members are assessed according to these different rules. Through the comprehensive comparison of the results of wave loads and strength assessment, the differences between these rules are summarized. Then some significant suggestions are given.
