Paper Title:
Residual Stresses in High Strength, Thick Section Steel Welds
  Abstract

The conservative assumption of residual stress in highly restrained steel structures can lead to unnecessary repairs of defects in welded joints. This applies particularly with respect to high restraint, high yield strength thick sections welds because the assumption of yield strength residual stress is used in integrity assessments. By analysing the stress within components both before and after welding it is anticipated that a greater understanding of the residual stress field as a product of both the welding residual stress and the pre-welding residual stress can be made. This paper discusses a series of experiments designed to build up such a model of the changing stress field within a T-butt weld. Neutron strain scanning has been performed on unwelded flat and curved steel sections and a curved T-butt weld. To complement this, surface X-ray measurements have been carried out in order to gain a quantitative measure of the changing surface stress during welding and sectioning. The findings were that welding stresses dominate close to the weld, bending stresses dominate further from the weld.
