EXPERIMENTAL EVALUATION OF THE SHEAR STRENGTH OF T-JOINTS IN ASTM A36 STEEL, FILLET WELDED UNDER SMAW PROCESS
arlos Serrano a, M.Acuña Saltos
Abstract
This project aimed to experimentally evaluate the shear strength of ASTM A36 steel fillet welds under the SMAW process. Standardised specimens of different thicknesses were obtained for the study. The LRFD method of the AISC 360:2010 was used to determine the theoretical shear strength, for the experimental value a tensile test was performed on the specimens where the fillet weld acts in shear, and the percentage error between the theoretical and experimental values is below 10%. At the same time, the shear strength in the effective area of the fillet weld of the experimental value was checked against table 4.3 of AWS D1.1:2020. Additionally, simulations of the specimens were carried out using the finite element method in ANSYS software and finally, the simulation was validated using the Hourglass energy principle.
