FATIGUE STRENGTH OF WELDED TUBULAR JOINTS IN OFFSHORE STRUCTURES

This paper describes experiments and analyses for a study on fatigue strength of tubular joints generally used for column stabilized drilling units or drilling platforms on the sea. It presents a fundamental guidance and data to designers engaged in this field by discussing the fatigue strength of such joints under complicated stresses and the most effective type of joint.
