The new accelerated cooled steels have many advantages, particularly their good weldability. Therefore, they are potentially a suitable replacement for the traditional normalized steel used in offshore structures. This research addressed the fatigue behaviour, in air and in seawater under cathodic protection, of offshore welded structures in TMCP steel, as compared with those made from traditional normalized steel. In addition, the research was intended to contribute to the methodology and scientific study of fatigue strength in seawater of offshore welded structures.
