||Thickness effect in 'relatively thin' welded joints
||HSE Books, P.O. Box 1999, Sudbury, Suffolk CO10 6FS, United Kingdom, 1995. 23p. 31 ref. Price: GBP 10.00.
||The fatigue strength of some types of welded joints is known to be dependent on thickness. In the light of recent experimental evidence, consideration was given to changing the 'basic' thickness for non-nodal joints from 22 to 16mm. Test results obtained from a literature survey were analyzed to establish the influence of thickness on fatigue strength over the thickness range 12-26mm. Results confirm that the thickness effect can be extended back to at least 16mm.
