Fatigue Strength Evaluation for Gas Welded Joint of Similar and Dissimilar Materials


Article Preview

In order to establish a reasonable and integrated fatigue design criterion for the long life design of the gas welded body structure, stress distribution around the gas welded joints subjected to tensile load was numerically analyzed. And also, the P-Nf curves were obtained by fatigue tests. By using these results, P-Nf curves were rearranged in the σ-Nf relation with the hot spot stress at the welded joint. And a guideline for fatigue design of gas welded joints was proposed.
