Über dieses Buch

This book provides a basis for the design and analysis of welded components that are subjected to fluctuating forces, to avoid failure by fatigue. It is also a valuable resource for those on boards or commissions who are establishing fatigue design codes. For maximum benefit, readers should already have a working knowledge of the basics of fatigue and fracture mechanics. The purpose of designing a structure taking into consideration the limit state for fatigue damage is to ensure that the performance is satisfactory during the design life and that the survival probability is acceptable. The latter is achieved by the use of appropriate partial safety factors. This document has been prepared as the result of an initiative by Commissions XIII and XV of the International Institute of Welding (IIW).

Chapter 2. Fatigue Actions (Loading)

Abstract
All types of fluctuating load acting on the component and the resulting stresses at potential sites for fatigue have to be considered. Stresses or stress intensity factors then have to be determined according to the fatigue assessment procedure applied.
A. F. Hobbacher

Chapter 3. Fatigue Resistance

Abstract
Fatigue resistance is usually derived from constant or variable amplitude tests. The fatigue resistance data given here are based on published results from constant amplitude tests. Guidance on the direct use of fatigue test data is given in Sects. 3.7 and 4.5.

Chapter 4. Fatigue Assessment

Abstract
In a fatigue assessment, the fatigue actions and the fatigue resistance are related by means of an appropriate assessment procedure. It must be ensured that all three elements (actions, resistance and assessment procedure) correspond.

Chapter 5. Safety Considerations

Abstract
A component has to be designed for an adequate survival probability. The required survival probability depends on the Uncertainties and scatter in the fatigue assessment data, Safety strategy, Consequences of failure.

Chapter 6. Appendices

Abstract
The appendices are intended to give special guidance, background information and additional explanations. They are not normative.
