The New API RP 2A, 22nd Edition Tubular Joint Design Practice – OnePetro

Proceedings of an International Conference Submersible Technology: The Task Group also evaluated and upgraded the tubular joint fatigue design procedures. Much further knowledge, including both experimental data and numerical studies, has been gained on the behavior of joints since the API RP rp2x 14 th Edition. Advanced closed form parametric formulations were edifion and verified against these analytical results to reduce scatter and generate more reliable formulation than provided in the API RP 2A WSD 14 th through 21 st Editions.


Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: Fatigue life correction factors for seawater, thickness, and use of weld profile control, grinding, and peening have also been introduced. Sheriff’s Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition.

Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: SN curves and fatigue design requirements for cast nodes and grouted joints have also been introduced. In the 14 th Edition, the punching shear stress formulations were considerably modified and included a more realistic expression to account for the effect of chord loads as well as providing an interaction equation for the combined effect of brace axial and bending stresses.

In the 3rd edition of API RP2A, issued insome simple recommendations were introduced based on ap shear principles Marshall, Karsan Paragon Engineering Services, Inc.

Peer reviewed only Published between: No tubular joint revisions were made since then, until now. About us Contact us Help Terms of use.

One significant feature of the new static design formulations is better representation of the chord load and geometry effects and the boundary conditions that are not possible with physical testing Pecknold01, 02, The static strength guidance then essentially remained unchanged for all editions up to the 21st, although further recommendations were added on load transfer through the chord in the RPRA Edition 20 issued in Rock Mechanics Symposium and 5th U. The University of Illinois at Erition, sponsored by API, developed nonlinear finite element models and verified them against available test results.


The Simplified Fatigue Design Procedure has been maintained, with the allowable peak hot spot stresses rechecked for the new SN curve.

These models were then apii to simulate a wide variety of geometries and static loading conditions, establishing a broader database than available test results. Also introduced in the 14 th Edition was the alternative nominal load approach, which gives equivalent results to the punching shear method Yura, Log in to your subscription Username.
