BASIC CONSIDERATIONS FOR TUBULAR JOINT DESIGN IN OFFSHORE CONSTRUCTION

Background data for Tubular Joint Design Rules in American Codes (API RP 2A and AWS D1.1-72) are reviewed in terms of static ultimate strength and fatigue. The problem of extension to high-cycle fatigue, which becomes increasingly important in severe weather areas and/or deep water, is explored. Case histories of offshore failures and noteworthy non-failures are examined in light of proposed criteria and sensitivity/risk analysis.
