Menu button "Weld shrinkage[Back]

Close Choose type of joint here If you choose Asymmetrical X- or K- joint some additional information has to be given here Mark here if it’s a T-Joint Here you can see a sketch of your joint, and the results of calculations. Example: Transversal shrinkage = 1,1mm Print as picture... Close

In the module Transversal shrinkage you can calculate theoretical transversal shrinkage based on cross section of weld metal and a empirical formula. The result is probably not 100% accurate, but tests have shown that the calculations is within normal requirements.

  • Start with choosing type of joint.
  • Input joint data.
  • For some types of joint additional information is required.
  • Calculations updates automatically.
  • The result is shown on the sketch.
