Abstract
Methods for determining the stress range in regions of high stress in ship structural details are described with emphasis on the hot spot method for fatigue analysis. Finite element models of typical details were created and analyzed to determine the hot spot stresses at the weld toe. Models of dtails with cut-outs were also analyzed by using essentially zero stiffness bar elements to determine the hot spot stresses at the plate edges of the cut-outs.
