Fracture and Fatigue of Welded Joints and Structures

by

Fracture and Fatigue of Welded Joints and Structures Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The failure of any welded joint is at best inconvenient and at worst can lead to catastrophic accidents. Fracture and fatigue of welded joints and structures analyzes the processes and causes of fracture and fatigue, focusing on how the failure of welded joints and structures can be predicted and minimized in the design process.

Part 1 concentrates on analyzing fracture of welded joints and structures, with chapters on constraint-based fracture mechanics for predicting joint failure, fracture assessment methods and the use of fracture mechanics in the fatigue analysis of welded joints. In part 2, the emphasis shifts to fatigue, and chapters focus on a variety of aspects of fatigue analysis including assessment of local stresses in welded joints, fatigue design rules for welded structures, k-nodes for offshore structures and modeling residual stresses in predicting the service life of structures.

Book News Annotation:

Contributors in mechanics, materials, and construction explore aspects of current fracture and fatigue research that are important to general concepts of designing welded strictures to avoid failure, and the ongoing assessment of the condition of structures and plants in service. Taking fracture and fatigue in turn, they consider such topics as test methods for constraint fracture mechanics, using fracture mechanics in the fatigue analysis of welded joints, the fatigue strength assessment of local stresses in welded joints, improving weld class systems in assessing the fatigue life of different welded joint designs, fatigue assessment methods for variable amplitude loading of welded structures, and assessing residual stresses in predicting the service life of welded structures.

Synopsis:

Fatigue is often a precursor to the fracture of a welded joint. This book summarizes the latest research in understanding fatigue and fracture in welded joints and structures. Part 1 reviews welded joints with chapters on fatigue strength assessment of local stresses, the use of fracture mechanics in fatigue and failure analysis and ways of improving weld joint class systems. Part 2 discusses welded structures with chapters on fatigue design rules for welded structures, fatigue assessment methods for variable amplitude loading, improving fatigue design using local approaches and modelling residual stresses in predicting the service life of welded structures.
