Welding & Assembly

Harmful tensile residual stresses are observed in structural steel weld joints as a result of the thermal strains between the solidified weld metal and surrounding base material. These harmful stresses, superimposed...

Welding & Assembly

The fatigue life is a major issue of weld joints due to a severe thermal exposure during the welding process. Welded joints experience highly localized heating and cooling from welding processes. As a result, the...
