Based on the hindcast data of 21 storm processes, a Poisson bivariate Logistic extreme value distribution is proposed to estimate the joint probability of extreme wind speed and extreme significant wave height in the storms, the frequency of which can be described by a Poisson distribution. In order to calculate the structural response of an ocean platform, such as base shear, three methods are utilized, namely (I) traditional univariate frequency analysis method; (II) base shear return value method; (III) wind-wave joint probability method. Calculation results show that the proposed statistical model is suitable for the design of fixed platforms in the storm-influenced area.
