USE OF FRACTURE MECHANICS IN TUBULAR CONNECTIONS FATIGUE CRACK GROWTH

The experimental studies carried out by IRSID (Institute de Recherches Siderurgiques) within the framework of a larger European program are backed up by a French program of theoretical and numerical studies. The purpose of this program is to relate the results obtained in the tests specimen experiments to the behaviour observed in large scale tubular joints tested in fatigue fracture mechanics. The paper presents some of the results and trends obtained, with which it should be possible to make better life predictions.
