Weld Joint - Butt Joint Calculation - Normal and Shear Load

Weld Design Menu

The following equations will determine the resultant reduced stress applied to a butt welded joint under going shear and normal loading.

Resultant Reduced Stress


 = Resultant Reduced Stress [MPa,psi]
= Normal stress [MPa,psi]

= Shear stress [MPa,psi]

Reference Stress

Where :

= Reference Stress [MPa, psi]

= Normal Stress  [MPa,psi]

= Shear stress [MPa,psi]

= Coefficient of weld joint
