The objective of this work is to investigate numerically (using the non-linear FEM and the approach stipulated by the Common Structural Rules) the severe nonuniform corrosion degradation eﬀect on the ultimate strength of stiﬀened plates and compare the results to the already published experimental works. Diﬀerent factors governing structural behavior of corroded stiﬀened plates are investigated, such as corrosion degradation level,...

Uncertainty assessment of ultimate strength of corroded stiffened plates subjected to different maintenance actions
The study deals with the uncertainty assessment of different governing factors related to the ultimate strength of the corroded stiffened plates. The load-carrying capacity is predicted with the use of the nonlinear Finite Element Method. The most influencing governing factors in the non-linear FE analysis, such as material properties and initial imperfections are modeled and analysed as stochastic variables. The ultimate strength...
