dc.description.abstractThis study reports an experimental investigation of a fatigue-cracked, pre-notched circular hollow section X-joints fabricated from high strength steels (with the yield strength higher than 800. MPa) subjected to brace in-plane bending. The circular hollow section X-joint entails a prefabricated V-notch near the weld toe at the crown position. The experimental procedure applies a fatigue pre-cracking cyclic load followed by a monotonic brace in-plane bending, which leads to brittle through-thickness crack propagation after some amount of ductile tearing. The ductile tearing assessment, integrating the fracture resistance curve obtained from the small-scale fracture specimens and the crack extension in the large-scale tubular joint, predicts closely the load level at which unstable crack extension takes place. The generic level 2A curve outlined in the BS7910 provides an un-conservative estimate on the failure load of the X-joint specimen. The parametric numerical investigation reveals that the strength definition for the cracked joints imposes a significant effect on the shape of the failure assessment curve. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
