Determination of Strain and Stress Fields in Welded Joints of S960-QC Steel

Open access


The paper presents the results of two butt welded joints by conventional method. The welding process was performed using a variety of linear welding energy. The studies included experimental and computational part. In experimental studies determined the distribution of hardness and mechanical properties of the individual analyzed sections of welded joints. The data obtained were intended to determine the extent of zones in the welded joints that have certain strength characteristics. Also conducted uniaxial tensile tests of welded joints with the registration of displacement fields on the surface of specimens by means of Aramis video-system what the final result are images of strain fields map on the surface of welded joints. The resulting strain values were compared with the results of numerical computations FEM.
