Comparison of design fatigue life values for cruciform joints: FAT class for crack at weld toe and from fillet weld
root; two values of misalignment considered, e = 0 and e = 0.1 t; maximum permissible weld convexity considered; continuous undercut omitted
However, it also results in arc wandering on fillet welds
. The arc dances from plate to plate, so the puddle starts at the toes of the weld and flows toward the center.
But with the new generation of vehicles, aluminium is often used for car doors, and fillet welds
instead of overlap welds--Bautze said switching from overlap to fillet welds
could save a couple of hundred grams per door, which improves fuel consumption.
Razmjoo, "Interim fatigue design recommendations for fillet welded
joints under complex loading," Fatigue and Fracture of Engineering Materials and Structures, vol.
The majority of site connections were bolted, with connection plates fillet welded
to tubes wherever possible.
Productivity and quality benefits are found in applications such as narrow groove welds, pipe welds, clad overlay, square butt joints, high-speed fillet welds
, hard banding, and others.
As an example, the inherent deformations of a fillet welded
joint were calculated by the proposed method in the present study.
Weiler Corporation's controlled flare end brushes feature a uniquely trimmed crimped wire fill for more effective brushing action and greatly enhanced durability when cleaning fillet welds
, corners, bevels, channels, and slots.
In the visual inspection, throat thickness of fillet welds
The very smooth, consistent hybrid welds have also been shown to improve fatigue limits on fillet welds
by 300% over similarly sized conventional welds.
Units feature a T304 stainless steel trough with internal product contact surfaces polished to #120 and internal fillet welds
ground to a minimum #80-grit finish for easy clean-out.
