Abstract: FITNET Fitness-for-Service (FFS) procedure is for the assessment of metallic structures with and without welds containing, or postulated to contain, flaws. The failure mechanisms considered are fracture, fatigue, creep and corrosion, together with combinations of these failure modes. FITNET FFS assessment results can provide information on material selection and hence the most suitable component fabrication route for safe and economical performance. FITNET FFS Procedure Revision MK8 is in detail given in Volume I which facilitates unified and updated structural integrity assessment routes through the main assessment modules (Fracture, Fatigue, Creep, Corrosion). Volume II contains Annexes which present solutions enabling the procedure to be applied. These provide primary sources of information on limit loads (incl. strength mismatch), stress intensity factor solutions for various geometries, weld residual stress distributions and solutions etc. Acompanying validation and worked examples are available in volume of Case Studies and Tutorials.
