DNV OS-C101-LRFD Weld Strength (2011)

An offshore standard DNV OS-C101-LRFD Weld Strength (2011) verifies structural stability for each structural member (weld). Weld connections (section 9) is implemented.

To add the standard execute Standard - DNV - DNV OS-C101-LRFD Weld Strength (2011) from the main menu.

Common options are described in the Weld Strength Settings chapter.

Press to set a Correlation factor (Beta_w):

Beta_w factor is obtained from Table C4, section 9 and depends on the material type:

Gamma_Mw - material factor that is used for DNV OS C 101 calculations can be found in Table C1, section 9 of the standard:


Gamma_M - material resistance factor for plated structures is a constant value (=1.15) and used in calculations to check base material strength.

Standard uses material data (Yield/Tensile) in calculations. Wizard checks if the values are defined for all materials.

Checks are created automatically and divided into few parts:
