Experimental Study on the Strength of Stainless Steel Fillet Welds†
AbstractThis paper describes 18 tensile tests performed on welded specimens made of 3 stainless steel grades: EN 1.4307 (304L) and EN 1.4404 (316L) austenitic grades and EN 1.4062 duplex grade. For each grade, 3 tests were carried out parallel to the weld causing shear stresses (in the weld throat plane, parallel to the weld throat axis) and 3 tests along the transverse direction, perpendicular to the weld, causing a combination of normal (perpendicular to the weld throat plane) and shear (in the weld throat plane, perpendicular to the weld throat axis) stresses. The digital image correlation (DIC) technique was used to measure the fracture surface. Based on these experiments, an assessment of the current design rules was made.
