This article discusses the various options for controlling fatigue and fractures in welded steel structures, with illustrations. It describes the factors that influence them the most. The article details some of the leading codes and standards for designing against failure mechanisms. Codes are presented for fitness-for-service and standards for fatigue and fracture control.
