Abstract

This article examines the factors influencing the fatigue behavior of an individual weldment, using extensive experimental data and a computer model, which simulates the fatigue resistance of weldments. It discusses the process of fatigue in weldments. The service conditions, which favor long crack growth and the conditions, which favor crack nucleation are contrasted. The article presents experimental data, which is used to show the effect of weldment geometry on fatigue resistance. Several useful geometry classification systems are compared. The article analyzes a computer model, which is employed to investigate the behavior of two hypothetical weldments, namely, a discontinuity-containing weldment and a discontinuity-free weldment.
