Title Stress concentration factors for tubular complex joints
Bibliographic information HMSO Books, P.O. Box 276, London SW8 5DT, United Kingdom, 1992. vii, 70 + 54p. Illus. 7 ref. Price: GBP 30.00.
Abstract This report based on an investigation of multi-planar joints shows that the use of single-plane stress concentration factor (SCF) equations for multi-planar joints used in offshore platforms can be justified, although some loading conditions require further investigation. In a study of overlapped joints, measured and predicted SCF values were compared.
