It is important to consider geometric parameters on Stress Concentration Factor (SCF) at the tubular joint, especially multi-planar joint, when designing a jacket platform. Thus, a jacket platform capable to withstand the extreme environmental loads. Many researchers use the Finite Element (FE) method to analyze stress at joints and estimate the SCF with the variation of geometric parameters. That studies obtained the result that geometric parameters have significant effect on decreasing or increasing the SCF. Therefore, this study will delve the effect of geometric parameters (β, τ, and 3) on maximum SCF caused by axial loading, in-plane bending moment, and out-of-plane bending moment at DKT tubular joint. The increase of β results in the decrease in maximum SCF at brace-side and chord-side weld toe, respectively. The increase of τ and γresults in the increase in maximum SCF at brace-side and chord-side weld toe, respectively.
