This paper presents the results of investigations into the mechanics and failure modes of structural details usually encountered in lightweight marine structures. The structural analyses are performed using non-linear finite element analysis. The stress concentration factors and expected fatigue lives of the as designed and the as built structural details are evaluated and alternative configurations are discussed with the aim of improving the designs for production.
