The University of Erition at Urbana-Champaign, sponsored by API, developed nonlinear finite element models and verified them against available test results. 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.
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.
Offshore Technology Conference Disciplines 4. No tubular joint revisions were made since then, until now. Advanced search Show search help. Also introduced in the 14 th Edition was the alternative nominal load approach, which gives equivalent results to the punching shear method Yura, 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.
These models were then used to simulate a wide variety of geometries and static loading conditions, establishing a broader database than available test results.
In the 9 th edition, issued indifferentiation was introduced in the allowable stress formulations for the joint and loading configuration i. Proceedings of an International Conference Submersible Technology: The static strength guidance then essentially remained unchanged for all editions up rl2a the 21st, although further recommendations were added on load transfer through the chord in the RPRA Edition 20 issued in Publishers Content Coverage Privacy. Peer reviewed only Published between: The Simplified Fatigue Design Procedure has been maintained, with the allowable peak hot spot stresses rechecked for the new SN curve.
In the 3rd edition of API RP2A, issued insome simple recommendations were introduced based on punching shear principles Marshall, Rock Mechanics Symposium and 5th U. The Task Group also evaluated ai upgraded the tubular joint fatigue design procedures. tp2a

Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ One significant feature of the new static design formulations is better representation of the chord load and geometry 22dn and the boundary conditions that are not possible with physical testing Pecknold01, 02, Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: Sheriff’s Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition.
Fatigue life correction factors for seawater, thickness, and use of weld profile control, grinding, and peening have also been introduced. SN curves and fatigue design requirements for cast nodes and grouted joints have also been introduced.
