FATIGUE CONSIDERATIONS FOR CONCRETE SHIPS AND OFFSHORE STRUCTURES
Strength to resist high-intensity reversed-cyclic bending and shear, rigidity to resist vibrations, water-tightness, impact resistance, and long life in an adverse environment of concrete and steel are compared. Ductility of fatigue failures and brittle fracture and cracking are analyzed. Fatigue life is calculated using the known damage characteristics for the material and selecting the appropriate theory for cumulative damage effects and proper recognition of all the factors, material, constructional and environmental, likely to affect the stress-life relationship.
