Welding Design

 

 

Proper edge preparation based on material characteristics and thickness of the members requires special attention. Welding distortion study and control techniques, effect of residual stresses need to be attended to.

The designs to avoid cracking tendency are essential for critical structures, pressure vessels, submarines and rocket shells. Dynamically loaded members have to be designed for giving maximum life before failure. Normally wrong designs cause maximum damage though correct materials and processes are selected.
