Cracks in Welded Structures
If a weld fails by cracking, it is important for a designer to know the reason why.
Can the crack be catagoriced as a Fatigue Crack or a Brittle Fracture Crack, the designer normally is responsible for it.
Other types of cracks the production unit normally has to take responsibility for.
Read my short article about it, or simply purchase the Design Handbook for Welded Structures and read about this and much more.
