A novel reliability evaluation procedure is proposed for analysis and design of offshore mooring dolphin structures (MDS). It is a hybrid approach consisting of an improved response surface method (IRSM), second-order reliability method (SORM), and several advanced factorial schemes. It is denoted as IRSM-SORM. Several schemes of IRSM-SORM are proposed and clarified with the help of an illustrative example.
