Stress Concentration Factor for some DTK Joints Based on Finite Element

Abstract:

Article Preview

By research of simple tubular joints, thin-shell element analyses have been conducted for thousands of DTK joints frequently used in offshore structures in this paper. These joints are subjected to axial load, by use of nonlinear least squares fitter, the above results are derived a new set of parametric equations, in terms of several non-dimensional geometric ratios γ, ξ, β, τ and θ with the Origin software. Separate analyses have been conducted for the difference of SCFs in DTK joints and SCFs for TK joint from empirical formulas. The SCF results of these joints could act as a good reference for both further academic studies on SCF of other complex joints and engineering designing works.
