Fatigue Design of Welded Joints and Components

Recommendations of IIW Joint Working Group XIII - XV

These recommendations present general methods for the assessment of fatigue damage in welded components, which may affect the limit states of a structure, such as ultimate limit state and serviceability limited state. Fatigue resistance data is given for welded components made of wrought or extruded products of ferritic/pearlitic or banitic structural steels up to fy = 700 Mpa and of aluminium alloys commonly used for welded structures.
