## F= applied load = 20000 N D = Diameter of tube = 200 mm X = Distance = 100mm

1. Unit throat length area (Au) of the welded joint is calculated from the eq.1 as below: Au=3.14*D=3.14*200=628 sq.mm

2. Design strength (Pw) is calculated from the eq.2 as: Pw=0.5*fu=0.5*430 = 215 N/sq. Mm

Where, fu is the ultimate tensile stress of the parent material. Assuming the parent material as S275 which has ultimate stress value (fu) 430 N/sq.mm.

3. Unit area moment of inertia (Iu) for the circular welded area around the tube can be calculated as Iu=3.14*(D/2)*(D/2)*(D/2)=3.14*200*200*200/8=3140000 mm4

## Where, 3.14 is the value of PI.

4. Direct shear stress (s) for the fillet welded connection is calculated from the eq.3 as: s=F/Au=20000/628=31.87 N/sq.mm

## b=M*Y/Iu=F*X*0.5*D/Iu= 20000*100*0.5*200/3140000 = 63.69 N/sq.mm

Where, M is the bending moment for the applied force Y is the distance between the X-X axis and the extreme fibre of the welded cross section, it is radius for the circular cross section.

6. Resultant stress () can be found out after weld stress analysis calculation by using the eq.5 as:

## t= / Pw=71.17 / 215= 0.331 mm

8. Weld leg length (L) need to be find out using the eq.7 as:

## L=1.414*t = 1.414*0.331 = 0.468 mm

So, from the fillet weld size calculation example we found that the required minimum weld leg length to withstand the weld force is to be 0.468 mm, we will take the 3mm as the weld size for this example problem.

## Should the first equation to be r 2 instead of D?

The units do not work out.... t= tau/Pw = (N/ Sq mm) / (N/Sq mm) = unitless and not length. There are other issues as well, but I would revisit your analysis if I were you. Nice try though.

Avatar MechGuru Mod Thanks for your comment. Please see the previous article: http://blog.mechguru.com/machi... You will find that the "tau" and "Pw" is calulated based on unit throat sie in mm and hence by dividing "tau / Pw" you will get the throat size in mm. It will be great if you tell what are the other issues, i can try to correct it.
