Welding for Strength 720358

Modern design trends are placing greater demands on welded structures. This paper discusses the present state of the art and provides recommendations for dealing with some of the more commonly encountered structural problems. Emphasis is placed on stress concentration and fatigue strength and the relation of these factors to welding practices and methods. Formulas needed to compute stress and strength are presented. Characteristics of various types of materials, of fillet size, and of good bonding welds are described and compared.
