Multipass welding of nuclear components: Computations
2002 (English)Report (Other academic)
The finite element method is used to compare different welding procedures. the simulations are compared with measurements. Two different geometries and two different welding procedures are evaluated. It is found that a narrow gap weld gives smaller tensile residual axial stresses on the inside of the pipe. This is believed to reduce the risk for intergranular stress corrosion cracking.
