Abstract:

This report presents a set of fatigue S-N curves for design and analysis of ship structural details. The set of fatigue curves is based on a reanalysis of fatigue data presented in SSC-318. The methodology used to develop the fatigue S-N curves is presented. Examples are presented to illustrate the application of S-N curves for plating under one inch thick. A glossary of terms used is provided. Recommendations are presented for future research. Fatigue, Ship structure, Structural details, S-N curves.
