Steel jacket support structures for offshore wind turbine towers made of circular hollow sections (CHS) are becoming a competitive solution compared to monopiles in deeper waters. The current limitation to improving the durability and cost-effectiveness of the CHS structures is the low fatigue endurance of their welded joints. Fatigue-driven...

In this paper, mode II fatigue crack growth properties of the composite-to-steel interface are characterised through different test configurations, namely ENF and 4ENF tests. Different loading types including force control and displacement control methods are compared. An innovative shear strain based method is proposed for monitoring the...

Hybrid bi-material concepts in engineering structures where fibre-polymer composites are used together with steel structural members have potential to reduce material usage, extend fatigue life and improve structural reliability. The bond performance of the bi-material composite-to-steel interface is of crucial importance and highly relies on...

Debonding crack propagation at the composite-to-steel interface has been found to be an important failure mechanism for wrapped composite joints under static and fatigue loads. Friction at the interface behind the crack tip may deviate fatigue debonding of the joints from the linear-fracture-mechanics behaviour. This paper presents static and...

The concept of an innovative bonded joining technology where welding is not required is presented as an alternative to traditional welded connection for steel circular hollow section (CHS). Wrapped composite joints have potential to greatly improve fatigue endurance when applied in multi-membered truss structures, e.g. offshore jackets for...

Wrapped composite joint is an innovative technique which connects steel hollow sections through bonding such that the fatigue performance is improved compared to welded joint. In this paper, a DIC-based method of monitoring surface strains is proposed to quantify the debonding crack propagation within the composite wrap layers during high cycle...

Wrapped composite joint is a novel joining technology which connects steel hollow sections through bonding, completely avoiding the welding in the load transferring mechanism. Fatigue performance of wrapped joints has been experimentally shown to be superior over their welded counterparts. Aiming to enable development of prediction methods...

Design and execution of fatigue load dominated circular hollow section (CHS) multi-membered structures, such as offshore jacket and floating structures for wind turbines, truss bridges, etc., is hinged on fatigue performance of critical welded joints. An innovative jointing technology of wrapped composite joint connects steel hollow sections by...
