Abstract

Structural integrity research involves calculation/estimation of stress concentration factors in engineering components, via sharp-crack fracture mechanics solutions, fracture mechanics application to engineering components including welded connections and fatigue failure and failure investigations. Paper focuses on the optimization of welded lightweight multiple-stiffener plate structures to minimise unwanted shape distortion.
