Summary:
In the present research butt welded ABS DH-32 steel specimens were fatigue tested under freely corroding and cathodic protection conditions by a time-series simulated wide-band spectra of a North Sea wave climate. Previous research pertaining to the probabilistic features of wave dynamics, wave force models, Markov-Chain sea state evolution and time-series simulation of wide-band spectra are addressed as a background review. The resulting freely corroding data are discussed on the basis of the SN plot which developed from the previous investigations at FAU. Calculation of the damage of failed specimens by employing the "Equivalent Narrow-Band Approach" resulted in excellent agreement with the linear damage summation assumption.
