COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

The important research in this book will be of interest to those dealing with a wide range of engineering structures - from bridges and buildings to masts and pipelines, as well as fatigue and fracture specialists, and those concerned with materials : $   Such fatigue loading represents a main cause of degradation in these structures.

As a result, fatigue is an important consideration in their design. Fatigue and Fracture Mechanisms of Offshore Structures present novel research and the results of wave-induced stress on the operational life of offshore structures. When this book was first drafted, the author's intention was to use it in teaching his course Marine Structural Design.

It focuses on fitness for service, or life extension, of existing structures as well as provides case studies to allow the practicing professional engineer or student to see the applications of fracture mechanics directly to various types of structures.Fatigue and fracture are important design criteria for ships to ensure a sufficiently high safety level.

Ship structures are prone to fatigue because of high cyclic loading caused primarily by waves, but also because of changing cargo distributions and excited : Wolfgang Fricke.Fracture is the separation of an object or material into two or more pieces under the action of fracture of a solid usually occurs due to the development of certain displacement discontinuity surfaces within the solid.

If a displacement develops perpendicular to the surface of displacement, it is called a normal tensile crack or simply a crack; if a displacement develops.
