Tube / Pipe Circumference Butt Weld With Torque Joint Calculation

Weld Design Menu

The following equations will determine the circumeferential stress applied to a a welded joint under going torque loadings.

Circumference Butt Weld Stress with Torque Shear Stress


= Shear stress [MPa,psi]


= Constant
                Metric units u=1000
                Imperial units u=12
W = Section modulus throat area [mm3, in3]


= Torque applied [Nm, lb-ft]

Comparative Stress 


= Comparative stress [MPa,psi]
= Shear stress  [MPa,psi]
= Conversion coefficient of weld joint
