Strength mis-match effect on local stresses and its implication to structural assessments

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Selected results on the strength mis-match effect on local stresses in welded joints are given for plane strain welded joints with two limiting crack locations, in the centre of the weld and at the interface of the weld metal and base plate. In predicting the behaviour of welded joints, brief discussions are made on the significance of parameters such as the strength mis-match, slenderness of the weld, and the crack location. Finally, speculations are given on the transferability of toughness data in structural assessments.
