This article discusses the estimation of directional metocean design criteria for engineering applications. We provide a summary of current code recommendations relating to directional design criteria and illustrate conceptually and mathematically some of the difficulties of their derivation. We also discuss the application of directional criteria for the specific examples of Code Check and Pushover analyses for fixed structures and jack-up rigs.
