The crux and importance of toughness of offshore steel structure are demonstrated with positive method. The definition of CTOD(crack tip opening displacement) and some codes about CTOD test are presented. Some offshore steel structure standards related to CTOD are given. Three applications of CTOD technique in offshore steel structure, including quality controlling and improving fabrication efficiency and reducing fabrication costs, are also represented.
