Fatigue failure is a widespread concern in engineering, as it can lead to catastrophic consequences if not properly addressed. Fabricated steel structures can be susceptible to fatigue due to many factors, including loading conditions, incorrect analysis and design, fabrication specification, detailing, quality control, plant operation and maintenance.
This webinar aims to shed light on the various aspects affecting fatigue in steel structures, including its causes and mitigation techniques. The webinar, which consists of on-demand pre-recorded presentations (video, audio and slides), will cover the various strategies adopted to identify and analyse fabricated steelwork to mitigate the risk of fatigue failure.
This webinar is presented by Richard Shedlock, Simon Dimopoulos, Olaf Rutgrink from AMOG Consulting and Andrew Saldanha from Jadestone Energy who are professional engineers with extensive knowledge and experience in the topic.
This section covers the most common lifecycle factors that contribute to steelwork fatigue failures:
This section explores common reasons why structural analysis plays a part in preventing fatigue failure:
This section explores complexities in fatigue calculations by way of examples and summarises areas designers need to cover in specifications:
This section explores areas of fabrication and quality control that designers and maintainers of fatigue-sensitive structures should be aware of:
