STRESS RISE DUE TO OFFSET WELDS IN TENSION

If a butt weld in a sheet structure under tension is mismatched, an offset is produced which causes bending stresses at the weld in addition to the tensile stresses. The total stress field is calculated for the flat plate and also for a symmetrical mismatch in a cylindrical pressure vessel.
