The correct and accurate prediction of the growth of fatigue cracks occurring under particular service conditions is important for those concerned with the application of tolerance-related design philosophy to the design of various marine structures. The people have realized that the method of predicting the fatigue life basing on the FCP theory, standing for the fatigue crack propagation, may be applied to explain the fatigue phenomena commonly observed.
The present publication is addressing the issues that are leading towards the UFLP method - its philosophy, in turn, may serve as a basis to resolve the existing inconsistency between the fatigue design of the structures and their inspection. The content of the book reflect s all latest developments in fatigue studies including those by the authors.
It has been intentionally designed to guide the future directions and provide practically useful instrument. The book shall be used by the naval architects and engineers plus all people involved in fatigue prevention design of the marine structures, their maintenance, periodical inspection and repairs, as well as in the development of the relevant rules and regulations.
