Effect of Material Properties on the Plastic Straining Capacity of Defective Welds
This paper describes the effect of the interrelation between the base and weld metal postyield characteristics on the CMOD (Crack Mouth Opening Displacement) and the straining capacity of a defective weld. The effect is discussed and illustrated by means of test data obtained from standard CTOD and tension loaded wide plate tests.
