Description: This lecture demonstrates, how optimum design and fabrication of extruded space frame members joined by welding can lead to significant weight savings, high service life and economy under fatigue loading conditions. Basic knowledge of structural engineering, extrusion design, welding and fatigue; and some familiarity with TALAT lectures no. 1302, 1501, 2200, 2302 and 2400 is assumed.
Keywords: design • optimization • extrusion • test nodes • node-to-member joint • fatigue test • dynamic testing
