This assessment is concerned with the fatigue strength of the tendon porch found in TLP. Lorge-scale fatigue tests with models constructed at 30% the size of the real structures have been carried out to investigate the fatigue behavior of the API 2W Grade 50 steel recently produced by POSCO. The fatigue life for the present test models was obtained based on the concept of nominal stress. A comparison of the present test results with those obtained by a numerical approach based on the structural analysis results has showngood agreement. The present results were also compared with the design curves in DnV RP-C203.
