Fracture Analysis of Thick Plate for Partial Penetration Multi-Pass Weldment Using Ĵ-Integral
Partial penetration welding joint defines the groove welds that applies the one side welding which does not use steel backing and both side welding without back gouging, that is, the partial penetration welding joint leaves an unwelded portion at the root of the welding area. In this study, we analyzed the residual stress and fracture on the thick metal plates that introduced the partial penetration welding method. We performed the fracture behavior evaluation on the partial penetration multi pass welding with 25.4mm thick plate by using the Ĵ-integral, which finally led us the conclusion that the partial penetration multi-pass welding method is more applicable and effective in handling the root face with less than 6.35mm.
