Part 3 Hull - Chapter 9 Fatigue
|Publication Date:||1 October 2015|
This chapter provides fatigue strength requirements for welds and free plate edges.
The fatigue assessment of the hull structure is based on high cycle wave induced loads, design S-N curves and Palmgren-Miner method for linear fatigue damage accumulation.
The structural details required for fatigue strength assessment are determined with consideration of ship type experience, probability of fatigue cracking and consequence of failure.
