Fatigue Life Prediction using Forces in Welded Plates of Moderate Thickness
2000 (English)Other (Other academic)
A new finite element based method for fatigue life prediction has been examined. The method uses nodal forces and moments along the weld toe to define a structural stress perpendicular to the weld. The method was found to be less mesh-sensitive than ordinarie post-processing.
