Weld Joint - Butt Joint Calculation -Torque Load

Weld Design Menu

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

Shear Stress

Where :
= Shear Stress [MPA,psi]
u = constant
- for calculation in metric units u = 1000
- for calculation in imperial units u = 12
T = torque [Nm, lb-ft]

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


Reference Stress

Where : 
= Reference Stress [MPa,psi]
= Shear Stress [MPa,psi]
= coefficient of the weld joint
