WP 3 –┬áCategorization of the details and design rules

Objectives

Based on the investigations carried out at material level (within WP1) and on components and full scale details (within WP2), in WP3 fatigue design rules and recommendations adapted to EN 1993-1-9 will be developed and calibrated to the results of tests and numerical calculations.

Worked examples will also be produced, in order to provide the users with guidance during the design process.

Objective 3.1 : Categorization of the analysed cold formed steel structural details

Objective 3.2 : Development of a fatigue design model for cold formed steel details to be implemented in the generic design method for fatigue, according to EN 1993-1-9

Objective 3.3 : Development of worked examples.
