Effects of Fabrication on Local Stress Conditions

by Raymond H. R. Tide, Wiss, Janney, Elstner Assoc Inc, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Steel Structures


Factors connected with fabrication that impact on the behavior of structural steel members are reviewed. Residual stresses that result from basic steel production and subsequent fabrication either have no impact or are considered in the design requirements. Workmanship associated with flame cutting and welding impact on the performance of connections due to fatigue, brittle fracture and lamellar tearing considerations.
