THE SELECTION AND FABRICATION OF STEELS FOR OFFSHORE STRUCTURES
The rigorous service conditions and the environmental hazards posed by potential failures have resulted in stringent specificatons for both steel plate and welded joints. The significance of general specifications for both plates and welded joints in offshore structures are considered in the context of existing codes of practice and rationalization involving an increase in the severity of material requirements. Steels available to meet specified properties are described together with the implications for forming and post weld heat treatment. Future developments which could lead to significant increases in welding productivity are discussed.
