AD 2000

Languages: German and English. All the main metallic materials are considered in this standard. It is based not only on DBF (=Design by Formulae) methods, but also on DBA (=Design by Analysis). Detailed rules for Fatigue Analysis are given, with a simplified method for Fatigue evaluation based on DBF. Rules for loads other than pressure are also provided. The single sheets of the standards (Merkblätter) are regularly updated by VdTÜV (the German Federation of the Inspection Organizations). Design in creep conditions is possible for any predefined lifetime, provided the relevant material data are available. More information on AD 2000:
