This book deals with practical problems in structural design and service inspection. It explains how to cope with likely future problems relating to fatigue design of welded structures. When correctly understood and applied, models of fatigue behaviour are very useful tools in engineering assessment. Details of how to use calculation tools on an Excel spreadsheet are included to give hands-on experience. These spreadsheets are so detailed that they can be used for realistic industrial cases. 1. Basic characterization of the fatigue behaviour of welded joints 2. Experimental methods and data analyses 3. How to describe fatigue loading 4. Elaborating the S-N approach with reference to rules and regulations 5. Favorable configuration and improvement methods for welded joints 6. Applied Fracture mechanics 7. Reliability methods 8. Engineering critical assessment and damage tolerance 9. A two-phase model for the fatigue life prediction of welded joints Appendices Tom Lassen is from Agder University College in Grimstad, Norway. He also teaches aircraft maintenance for the Norwegian Royal Air Force and has recently been a visiting Professor at University Blaise Pascal, Clermont-Ferrand, France. Naman Recho is a Professor at the University Blaise Pascal in Clermont Ferrand, France. He has worked extensively with conceptual and applied aspects of fracture mechanics, with welded offshore structures and reliability analysis of cracked structures. He also teaches at Centre des Hautes Etudes de la Construction, Paris, and is guest Professor at Hefei University of Technology in China.
