Ye, Y. and Chen, C., 2015. Research on fatigue crack assessment for fixed platform.

This paper uses a combination of fatigue analysis and fracture mechanics approach, based on BS7910 specifications, API RP 2A specification, Norsok Standard-N004 specification conducting fracture assessment and predicting fatigue life for existing crack on fixed offshore platform. Fracture and fatigue analysis software for fixed platform is completely programmed. The software applied to perform engineering critical assessment of fracture (ECA) and fracture mechanics-based fatigue life prediction for the typical tubular joints on fixed platform.
