FATIGUE TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT AND STRATEGIES FOR FATIGUE AVOIDANCE IN MARINE STRUCTURES. APPENDICES
The report synthesizes the state-of-the-art in fatigue technology as it relates to the marine field. Over the years more sophisticated methods have been developed to anticipate the life cycle loads on structures and more accurately predict the failure modes. As new design methods have been developed and more intricate and less robust structures have been built it has become more critical than ever that the design tools used be the most effective for the task. The report categorized fatigue failureparameters, identifies strengths andweaknesses of the available design methods, and recommends fatigue avoidance strategies based upon variables that contribute to the uncertainties of fatigue life.
