STATIC AND FATIGUE STRENGTH OF HIGH TENSIL STRENGTH STEEL TUBLAR JOINTS FOR OFFSHORE STRUCTURES

Eleven full-scale models of joints taken from an actual in-service structure were tested under monotonic or cyclic loadings. The specimens consisted of 8 welded and 3 cast tubular "n-joints" with a chord of either 760mm or 660 mm outer diameter. Some of them, including three cast joints, were reinforced by thickening the portions of the chord walls where the braces were welded. The materials used for both chord and braces of each specimen were of a "jis-ht80" (equivalent ot ASTM A514 Grade F') steel. Order from NSFI as No. 16336.
