A case study comparison of the surface extrapolation and Battelle structural stress methodologies has been performed on a side shell connection detail typical of a representative FPSO or tanker vessel. Computations of hot spot stress via either method are consistent with current recommended practice. Convergence analysis to determine the hot spot stresses that best serve as fatigue parameters and a fatigue comparison that employs hot spot stresses from the convergence analysis have been executed at various locations around the detail. Results are reported and discussed.
