Keel Fatigue Analysis
In recent years the performance of monohull racing yachts has dramatically increased, partly due to the introduction of canting keels. This new technology brings challenges for engineers to ensure the keels are designed safely, using available tools and codes of practices. As we have seen as recent as 2013 keels still fail. This is despite the use of high strength materials in their designs. The truth is that their strength, so trustworthy under static loads, is no indicator of fatigue life under repeated, smaller loads.
