  • Four main areas with good potential for impact on radiation effects research in the next few years were addressed: (1) In-situ, real time experimentation; (2) computer experiments; (3) impact of high resolution and analytical electron microscopy on radiation effects research; and (4) defect production in metals by electronic losses. Recollections from the session assembled with the help of view graphs kindly provided by some of the discussion participants are included.
  • A method for the evaluation of the collapse probability under extreme loads is proposed for jacket-type offshore platforms. Following the generation of the dominant modes of structural failure, each is assigned an occurrence probability. The failure probability of the structural members at each stage of damage is calculated with taking into account the correlations between the types of environmental actions and between the member internal forces. The strength of the structural members is evaluated according to three limit state criteria: biaxial bending plastification, buckling and punching shear.
  • An attractive approach to integrity assessment of jacket structures subjected to extreme storm cyclic loading is based on considerations of system strength rather than component strength. The system strength is determined by nonlinear pushover analyses. Nonlinear cyclic analyses are undertaken to determine if the system strength will be degraded due to repeated action of extreme waves. In the present series of papers, conditions for application and extension of such a procedure are addressed. Tubular members with D/t ratio in the range 35--80 were tested under extreme cyclic loading to investigate criteria for onset of local buckling and number of cyclesmore » to through thickness cracking. Tubular T-joints were tested under extreme cyclic loading to investigate degradation of cyclic capacity imposed by low cycle fatigue cracking. In part 1 of this series of papers, an overview of the developed methodology for integrity assessment of jacket structures is given. Conditions for application are addressed and illustrated by way of an example study.« less
  • Tubular members with D/t ratio 35, 45, 60 and 80 were tested under controlled axial displacement described by an amplitude and a mean level. The material was structural steel to St. 52-3N, with minimum yield stress 345 MPa. The slenderness ratio of the specimens were in the range 50--70. During testing, the specimens were instrumented for measurements of longitudinal and transversal deflections, ovalization, and extreme fiber strains. Number of cycles to local buckling and through thickness cracking was recorded. Selected tests were simulated by use of the nonlinear beam-column FE program USFOS and the shell FE program ABAQUS. Comparisons weremore » made to the corresponding test results. Monotonic and cyclic capacity criteria of tubular members are discussed on the basis of the results obtained.« less
  • High-energy excitations are a continuing challenge to experimental, analytical, and computational approaches for learning the behavior of materials and structures under extreme loading conditions. Problems involving underwater explosions and their effects on structures lead off this volume. These are followed by problems traditionally falling in the category of structural dynamics: the buckling and large plastic deformation of structures and structural elements subjected to intense, short-duration distributed or localized loads. As load intensity increases and both load duration and response times decrease, analyses using wave propagation concepts become important. The focus shifts to the local response of the material at themore » load point rather than the global response of the structure. Many papers herein present experimental, analytical, and numerical solutions to problems of blast and impact loading on diverse structures or structural elements. Others deal with techniques required to generate such loading in the laboratory and the instrumentation required to establish loading conditions and measure response characteristics. This broad coverage of topics should make this a valuable volume for those working in shock and impact loading, high rate material behavior, penetration and perforation, and also hypervelocity impact. Separate abstracts were prepared for some papers in this volume.« less
