Fillet welds are extensively used in shipbuilding, automobile and other industries. Heat concentrated at a small area during welding induces distortions and residual stresses, affecting the structural strength. In this study, indirect coupled-field method is used to predict welding residual stresses and deformation in a fillet joint due to welding on both… CONTINUE READING
