Abstract

Fatigue cracks have recently been observed at weld roots between the deck plate and U-rib in orthotropic steel decks. Some cracks initiated from the weld roots and then propagated through the deck plate. The welding residual stress at the root appears to have a considerable influence on crack initiation and propagation. However, the stress has not yet been efficiently clarified in previous studies. In this study, the residual stress of model specimens with or without weld penetration and root gap were measured using the cutting method and magnetostriction method. In addition, thermo-elastic-plastic finite element analyses were carried out on parametric models of actual welded joints.
