Design & Design Strengths
This article gives recommendations for full and partial penetration butt welds and fillet welds made by an arc welding process. The adequacy of a weld at ultimate limit state may be determined by the simple method of BS 5950:1. The Geometric parameters required for the calculation of design strength are the effective length of the weld and the effective throat size, whilst guidance is given on suitable range for the angle of intersection at the joint.
