THE EFFECT OF PORES CAUSED BY SHOP PRIMERS ON THE FATIGUE STRENGTH OF LONGITUDINALLY STRESSED FILLET WELDS

Particularly with fillet welds, the gases produced when shop primers are welded over pass through the molten pool and form pores which may extend to the surface of the weld. The authors consider the effect of pores of varying size and frequency on the fatigue strength of longitudinally stressed fillet welds. The welding and production parameters are examined statistically to allow statements capable of general application to be made about the fatigue strength characteristics of longitudinal fillet welds containing pores. There was only a slight difference in the fatigue strength of longitudinal fillet welds with and without pores, even though pores in general were found to be critical for fatigue failure irrespective of their size.
