Annotation Contains 19 papers presented during five of the technical sessions sponsored by the design and analysis committee during the August 2002 conference. The researchers present new developments and methods for the evaluation of service induced damage such as cracking or wall thinning. Among the topics are fitness for purpose assessment of a full encirclement split tee for hot tapping, probabilistic integrity assessment of axial flaw in CANDU pressure tubes, non-linear analysis of anchored tanks subject to equivalent seismic loading, and development of a handbook for the refinery and petrochemical industries.
