Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


In the following chapter, the Rousselier model is applied to study numerically the crack propagation in S355 electron beam welded joints. As explained in Chap. 3, crack propagation in C(T)-specimens (C(T)25 with 20% side groove) with different initial crack positions, i.e., the initial crack located in the BM, in the center of the FZ or at the interface between the FZ and the HAZ were tested.
