Hot Spot Stress Fatigue Evaluation to Duplex Stainless Steel Welded Joints
Fatigue strength of duplex stainless steel welded joints with longitudinal fillet welded guess and with longitudinal flat side guess welded on plate was evaluated by hot spot stress, hot spot stress S-N curves were produced and compared with normal stress S-N curves. The results show that the hot spot stress fatigue strength of the two kinds welded joints should be expressed by only single S-N curve while nominal stress S-N curves can only be regressed respectively. The test data are greatly above the S-N curves with slope m=3, recommended by IIW, which indicates that the slope m=3(IIW) has great safety factor in practical engineering application. But there is no appreciable difference in fatigue strength between duplex stainless steel and common structural steel with similar welded joints when fixed the test data to slope m=3.
