Survey of strength effects of welding



The non-detachable joining or coating of components or materials, termed welding, is designed to produce a joint of adequate strength. Strength for the engineer relates to the resistance of the component to function-disturbing failures such as insufficient stiffness, local or global yield or creep, instability phenomena (buckling and postbuckling), cracking (hot and cold cracks), fracture processes (ductile, brittle, creep and fatigue fracture), wear and corrosion.
