Done over 17 days, these 3 projects form a progression.
Each of the 3 projects aims to test welds - with interest in its relation to the "substrate" section, the RHS (Rectangular Hollow Section), under load.
Various objectives were served. The propulsion of the test series through its 3 projects was the objective of testing the test welds:
The three projects:
In January 2021, I present
Proposal : research path to high-strength steel fatigue-resistant welded structures
which seeks a host for this investigative programme aiming to make use of the observation that fillet welds can show fatigue resistances approaching those of the steels they are joining.
