AISC JUGGLES SIZZLING POTATO IN REPORT ON LAMELLAR TEARING

This article is a review of a report in the third-quarter issue of AISC's Engineering Journal on lamellar tearing of steel. Lamellar tearing of steel is the separation in the parent or base material caused by through-thickness strains induced by shrinkage of weld metal. It is most frequently associated with large groove welds, which are generally required with thick material, but the report adds, "if the weld size or restraint condition is sufficient, it can also occur in thin material." The various recommendations made in the report to minimize or avoid lamellar tearing are listed.
