This report, presents outcomes from the Education and Dissemination Workshops held at Noordwijk and Palma on October 2003 and March 2004 respectively. The results from a 'round-robin' exercise, completed as part of this activity, are also documented. These workshops and the 'round-robin', examined the procedures used in various industry sectors for the modelling and assessment of common fabrication details in plate/shell construction. The primary aim of this exercise was to examine "best practice" in modelling and assessing such detail (with general shell elements) and to disseminate this to the FENET membership and beyond. However, the 'round-robin' was seem as an excellent opportunity to examine such practice and to observe resulting educational and quality assurance related issues.
