Description

A Special Report from the International Institute of Welding which introduces definitions of the terminology relevant to stress determination for fatigue analysis of welded structures. The various stress concentrations, stress categories and fatigue analysis methods are defined, and recommendations for applying finite element methods and experimental methods for stress determination are given.
