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.

Also introduced in the 14 th Edition was the alternative nominal load approach, which gives equivalent results to the punching shear method Yura, Fatigue life correction factors for edituon, thickness, and use of weld profile control, grinding, and peening have also been introduced. No tubular joint revisions were made since then, until now.

In the 9 th edition, issued indifferentiation was introduced in the allowable stress formulations for the joint 22bd loading configuration i. The Simplified Fatigue Design Procedure has been maintained, with the allowable peak hot spot stresses rechecked for the new SN curve. Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: One significant feature editipn the new static design formulations is better representation of the chord load and geometry effects and the boundary conditions that are not possible with physical testing Pecknoldspi, 02, The Task Group also evaluated and upgraded the tubular joint fatigue design procedures.


SN 222nd and fatigue design requirements for cast nodes and grouted joints have also been introduced. 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 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.

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.
