DESIGN FOR WELDING OFFSHORE STRUCTURES
This paper discusses twelve basic factors that are considered important to practical and economic design for welding of offshore structures. When all these factors are understood, coordinated and properly applied by structural-design engineers, manufacturing engineers, as well as on-the-job supervision and craftsmen, weldments can be produced at a realistic cost, delivered on schedule, and have the properties to provide reliable service. Examples are given that illustrate the influence and limitations that metal properties, weld-joint designs, welding methods, and procedures have on the making of crack-free welds with the dynamic and static properties required by properly drawn and sufficiently inclusive specifications.
