Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: One significant feature of the new static design formulations is better representation of the chord load and geometry effects and the boundary conditions that are not possible with physical testing Pecknold01, 02, In the 14 th Edition, the punching shear stress formulations were considerably modified and included a more realistic expression to account for the effect of chord loads as well as providing an interaction equation for the combined effect of brace axial and bending stresses.
Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ Offshore Technology Conference Disciplines 4. Advanced search Show search help. Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: In the 3rd edition of API RP2A, issued insome simple recommendations were introduced based on punching shear principles Marshall, Advanced closed form parametric formulations were developed and verified against these analytical results to reduce scatter and generate more reliable formulation than provided in the API RP 2A WSD 14 th through 21 st Editions.
The Task Group also evaluated and upgraded the tubular joint fatigue design procedures.
Wdition Mechanics Symposium and 5th U. Peer reviewed only Published between: Fatigue life correction factors for seawater, thickness, and use of weld profile control, eddition, and peening have also been introduced. The Simplified Fatigue Design Procedure has been maintained, with the allowable peak hot spot stresses rechecked for the new SN curve. The static strength guidance then essentially remained unchanged for all editions up to the 21st, although further recommendations were added on load transfer through the chord in the RPRA Edition 20 issued in SN curves and fatigue design requirements for cast nodes and grouted joints have also been rp2z.
In the 9 th edition, issued indifferentiation was introduced in the allowable stress formulations for the joint and loading configuration i.
Karsan Paragon Engineering Services, Inc. These models were then used to simulate a wide variety of geometries and static loading conditions, establishing a broader database than available test results. Publishers Content Coverage Privacy. Log in to your subscription Username.
No tubular joint revisions were made since then, until now. The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, sponsored by API, developed nonlinear finite element models and verified them against available test results. Also introduced in the 14 th Edition was the alternative nominal load approach, which gives equivalent results to the punching shear method Yura,
