The Integrity Analysis of the Structural Element Made of Ultra High Strength Steel
In this paper, a FITNET analysis of the structural element made of ultra high strength steel was performed. The critical loadings at failure were estimated at three levels of analysis and two temperatures, -40°C and +20°C. The results of the analysis were verified by full scale experiments at -40°C, which proved that the predictions of the critical moment provide a sufficient safety margin.
