Effect of Residual Stresses on the Structural Safety of the Butt Welded Structural Steels

Butt welded seams are widely used in steel constructions. The welding conditions, bevel geometry and the weld sequence are decided by considering the material thickness, welding process and the accessibility. Welding operation generates a residual stress state in the joint area depending on the geometry or path of the weld, initial temperature of the material, heat input, clamping conditions, cooling conditions, phase transformations, etc. Design of a product ignoring residual stresses always involves risks for distortion or early failure in the service. In this work, the construction safety measures and the loading safety was discussed based on the surface residual stress distribution in the butt welded joints.

Effect of welding parameters on the hot cracking behavior of 7039 aluminum - zinc alloy
Akkuş, Mert; Gürbüz, Rıza; Batıgün, Caner; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2010)
7039 aluminum alloys are widely being used in the aerospace, automotive and defense industries in which welding technique is used for their joining. The main problem encountered during the welding of 7039 aluminum alloy is hot cracking. The aim of this study is to understand the effect of welding parameters on the hot cracking behavior of 7039 aluminum alloy by using Modified Varestraint Test (MVT) with Gas Tunsgten Arc Welding (GTAW) technique. During tests, welding speed was selected as varying parameter,...
Residual stress analysis of riveting process using finite element method
Karasan, M Murat; Kadıoğlu, Fevzi Suat; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2007)
Rivets are widely used as a means of fastening in airframe construction industry. There are various types of riveted joints on an aircraft fuselage or on a helicopter body. Among the other types of fasteners riveted joints are preferred in such applications due to; their permanence after installation and their economical advantages. In a riveted joint, it is known that residual stresses are present as a result of the installation process. Furthermore, during the flight of an aircraft, the fuselage is loaded...
Effect of fiber and resin type on the axial and circumferencial tensile strength of fiber reinforced polyester pipe
Gökçe, Neslihan; Yılmazer, Ülkü; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2008)
In this study, the aim is to investigate the stiffness, longitudinal tensile strength and circumferential tensile strength of short fiber reinforced polyester composite pipes produced by centrifugal casting production method. To achieve this aim, theoretical calculation of modulus of elasticity of pipes was done and then test program was carried out on pipe samples produced with three different resin types which were orthophthalic, isophthalic and vinyl ester resin and three different fiber types which were...
Effect of specimen size, fiber type and concrete strength on the flexural performance of fiber reinforced concrete
Güzelce, Aydinç; Yaman, İsmail Özgür; Department of Civil Engineering (2019)
To overcome the brittleness of concrete, fiber reinforcement is a commonly used material, which highly increases the toughness of concrete in a cost-effective way. The aim of this study is to assess the effect of different fiber parameters on the flexural behavior of fiber reinforced concrete. Bending tests were performed on two different beam sizes made of 20 different concrete batches. The type and amount of the fibers along with the grade of the concrete were changed to form this batch combination. The f...
Effect of hydrogen on fatigue behavior of a cadmium coated high strength steel
Güleken, Ümran Başak.; Gürbüz, Rıza; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2019)
C Despite the associated health and safety concerns of Cadmium, this material remains the most commonly used fastener plating material in aerospace applications. The plating operation is done by a well understood and common electrodeposition process. If a cadmium plated part has high strength (1000 MPa and above) then in order to prevent hydrogen embrittlement it must be baked at 191°C for 23 hours, within 2 hours after plating. Yet it has been seen that parts fail due to hydrogen embrittlement during servi...
