Fatigue design of welded joints using the finite element method and the 2007 ASME Div . 2 Master curve


Fatigue design of welded structures is primarily based on a nominal stress; hot spot stress methods or local approaches each having several limitations when coupled with finite element modeling. An alternative recent structural stress definition is discussed and implemented in a post-processor. It provides an effective means for the direct coupling of… (More)
