Weld Joint - Butt Joint Calculation - Bending Load

Weld Design Menu

The following equations will determine the normal stress applied to a butt welded joint under going bending loading.

Normal Stress

Where :

= Normal stress [MPa,psi]

= Constant

- for calculation in metric units u = 1000

- for calculation in imperial units u = 12

= Bending moment [Nm, lb ft]


= Section modulus of throat area of the weld [mm3, in3]

Reference Stress

= Reference stress [MPa,psi]
= Normal stress [MPa,psi]
= Coefficient of weld joint
