Fatigue Considerations in Welded Structure 820695

Primary factors which influence the fatigue behavior of welded structure are described. The status of methods for predicting the life to crack formation in weldments and subsequent life spent in crack propagation are reviewed, and their advantages and current limitations for use in fatigue design evaluations discussed. Manufacturing methods for improving weld fatigue strength are summarized. Future life prediction development needs are suggested.
