In the 3rd edition of API RP2A, issued insome simple recommendations were introduced based on punching shear principles Marshall, Proceedings of ecition International Conference Submersible Technology: Offshore Technology Conference Disciplines 4.

SN curves and fatigue design requirements for cast nodes and grouted joints have also been introduced. In the 9 th edition, issued indifferentiation was introduced in the allowable stress formulations for the joint and loading configuration i. Log in to your subscription Username.
The Task Group also evaluated and upgraded the tubular joint fatigue design procedures.

These models were then used to simulate a wide variety of geometries and static loading conditions, establishing a broader database than available test results.
The static strength guidance then essentially remained unchanged for all editions up to the 21st, although further recommendations were added on load transfer through the chord in the RPRA Edition 20 issued in Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: Proceedings of 222nd international conference Oceanology: Karsan Paragon Engineering Services, Inc.
Publishers Content Coverage Privacy. The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, sponsored by API, developed nonlinear finite element models and verified them 22nr 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 22n. The Simplified Fatigue Design Procedure has been maintained, with the allowable peak hot spot stresses rechecked for the new SN curve.
Much further knowledge, including both experimental data and numerical studies, has been gained on the behavior of joints since the API RP 2A 14 th Edition.
