  1. 1. Fatigue Analysis of Welded Structures Using the Finite Element Method

    Author : Mustafa Aygül; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hot spot stress; effective notch stress; the finite element method; orthotropic bridge deck; welded details;

    Abstract : Fatigue design and analysis of steel and composite bridges is generally based on the notion of the nominal stress using the classified S-N curves with corresponding fatigue classes for typical details. Such an approach can yield unrealistic the estimation of the load effects for structure components because of an ever increasing number of structural details and loading situations resulting in a limited number of possible treatable design cases.

  2. 2. Fatigue evaluation of welded details – using the finite element method

    Author : Mustafa Aygül; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; the finite element method; welded details; effective notch stress method; Hot-spot stress method; fracture mechanics;

    Abstract : The fatigue evaluation of welded details is generally based on the notion of nominal stress, using the classified S-N curves with corresponding fatigue classes for typical details. An approach of this kind should be used with extra caution to ensure that the load effects for components are accurately captured, because an ever-increasing number of welded details are resulting in a limited number of possible treatable design cases.

  3. 3. Multi-axial fatigue of welded details

    Author : Mathias Bokesjö; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Welds and welded joints are nowadays very common in steel structures. Since thewelded parts also are susceptible to fatigue, they can have a major influence on thetotal life of the structure. READ MORE
