Offshore Technology Conference Disciplines 4. The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, sponsored by API, developed nonlinear finite element models and verified them against available test results.
These models were then used to simulate a wide variety of geometries and static loading conditions, establishing a broader database than available test results. 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.
One significant feature of the new static design formulations is better representation of the chord load and 2nd effects and the boundary conditions that are not possible with physical testing Pecknold01, 02, The Task Group also evaluated and upgraded the tubular joint fatigue design procedures.
Fatigue life correction factors for seawater, thickness, and use of weld profile control, grinding, and peening have also been introduced. The Simplified Fatigue Design Procedure ali been maintained, with the allowable peak hot spot stresses rechecked for the new SN curve. SN curves and fatigue design requirements for cast nodes and grouted joints have also been introduced.
In the 3rd edition of API RP2A, issued insome simple recommendations were introduced based on punching shear principles Marshall, In the 9 th edition, issued indifferentiation was introduced pai the allowable stress formulations for the joint and loading configuration i.
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. Also introduced in the 14 th Edition was the alternative nominal load approach, which gives equivalent results to the punching shear method Yura, The static strength guidance then essentially remained unchanged for all editions up to the 21st, although further recommendations were added ai load transfer through the chord in the RPRA Edition 20 issued in No tubular joint revisions were made since then, until now.
