Description/Abstract

The revised United Kingdom Health and Safety Executive Design Guidance now recommends the use of BSI PD6493 for assessing defects in tubular joints of offshore structures. But despite the detailed guidance provided by these documents, little information is given on the choice of stress intensity factor (SIF) solutions which are fundamental to any fracture mechanics assessment.
