Predicting Failure in Arc-welded Steel Sheets

October 11, 2021

While spot weld performance has become easy to simulate in recent years, failure models for arc-welded sheet steel have never proved very reliable.

Recently, EWI developed and tested a new approach to modeling failure of arc welds used in sheet-steel construction. The work is described in a paper by EWI associates Bill Mohr and Amin Moghaddas, Testing to Determine Failure Criteria for Arc-welded Sheet Steel.
