How to Calculate Strength of Butt Welded Joint?
Strength of Butt Welded Joint calculator uses Tensile Stress in Weld = Tensile Force on Welded Plates/(Beam Width for Nominal Shear*Length of Weld) to calculate the Tensile Stress in Weld, Strength of Butt Welded Joint is the ratio of tensile force on the plate to the product of throat thickness and length of the weld. It is the maximum amount of stress that the welded joint can bear. Tensile Stress in Weld is denoted by σ_{t} symbol.
How to calculate Strength of Butt Welded Joint using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Strength of Butt Welded Joint, enter Tensile Force on Welded Plates (P), Beam Width for Nominal Shear (b_{ns}) & Length of Weld (L) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Strength of Butt Welded Joint calculation can be explained with given input values -> 5.6E-5 = 16500/(0.015*0.0195).
