One significant feature of the new static design formulations is better representation of the chord load and geometry eidtion and the boundary conditions that are not possible with physical testing Pecknold01, 02, The Task Group also evaluated and upgraded the tubular joint fatigue design procedures.

Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ Proceedings of an International Conference Submersible Technology: In the 3rd edition of API RP2A, issued insome simple recommendations were introduced based on punching shear principles Marshall, Fatigue life correction factors for seawater, thickness, and use of weld profile control, grinding, and peening have also been introduced.

The Simplified Fatigue Design Procedure has been maintained, with the allowable peak hot spot stresses rechecked for the new SN curve. Advanced search Show search help. In the 9 th edition, issued inddition was introduced in the allowable stress formulations for the joint and loading configuration i.

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 In the 14 th Edition, the punching shear stress formulations were considerably modified and included a more realistic expression to account for ediiton effect of chord loads as well as providing an interaction equation for the combined effect of brace axial and bending stresses.

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. Publishers Content Coverage Privacy. Offshore Technology Conference Disciplines 4.

The New API RP 2A, 22nd Edition Tubular Joint Design Practice – OnePetro

Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, sponsored by API, developed nonlinear finite element models and verified them against available test rp2s. No tubular joint revisions were 22jd since then, until now. SN curves and fatigue design requirements for cast nodes and grouted joints have also been introduced. Peer reviewed only Published between: Also introduced in the 14 th Edition was the alternative nominal load approach, which gives equivalent results to the punching shear method Yura, These models were then used to simulate a wide variety of geometries and static loading conditions, establishing a broader database than available test results.


Proceedings of an international conference Diverless rl2a Deepwater Techology: 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.
