Abstract The UKOSRP II programme, completed in 1986, was directed towards determining the fatigue endurance of joints and involved fatigue and corrosion fatigue tests on structural steel weldments and tubular joints and stress analysis of tubular joints. The programme consisted of 6 topic areas: effect of thickness; effect of corrosion fatigue; effect of post weld treatment; effect of other weld improvement techniques; effect of joint geometry; effect of variable amplitude loading. This report provides a summary of each of the 25 tasks in these areas and presents conclusions reached for each one.
