The fillet weld is used to make lap joints, corner joints, and T joints.
Fillet weld is roughly triangular in cross-section, although its shape is not always a right triangle
or an isosceles triangle. Weld metal is deposited in a corner formed by the fit-up of the two members and
penetrates and fuses with the base metal to form the joint.
This calculator is used to calculate the resulting stresses acting in the weld.
A weld of approximately triangular cross section joining two surfaces, approximately at right angles to each other, as in a lap joint.
Stress is a measure of the average amount of force exerted per unit area.
It is a measure of the intensity of the total internal forces acting within a body across imaginary internal surfaces,
as a reaction to external applied forces and body forces.
Shear stress is a stress state where the stress is parallel or tangential to a face of the material,
as opposed to normal stress when the stress is perpendicular to the face.
Polar moment of inertia is a quantity used to predict an object's ability to resist torsion,
in objects (or segments of objects) with an invariant circular cross-section and no significant warping
or out-of-plane deformation.
It is used to calculate the angular displacement of an object subjected to a torque.
It is analogous to the area moment of inertia, which characterizes an object's ability
to resist bending and is required to calculate displacement.
