Review on Factors Governing Stress Concentration Factor at Tubular Joints
Tubular structures have become so much in use because of their structural performance and attractive appearance. But at the intersections of these tubular structures (i.e., tubular joints), there is stress concentration which adds the fatigue damage in structures which is exposed to cyclic loads. The stress concentration factor plays a crucial role in the computation of fatigue life of tubular structures exposed to cyclic loads. This paper aims to review the factors governing stress concentration factor at tubular joints.
