Weld Allowable

From the NSTX Criteria:

• For welds in steel, the design Tresca stress shall be the lesser of:
• 2/3 of the minimum specified yield if the weld at temperature, or
• 1/3 of the minimum specified tensile strength of the weld at temperature.

From the AISC Criteria:

For shear on an effective throat of a fillet, For 304 Stainless, the weld metal is annealed, or the base metal in the heat effected zone is annealed. and Estimate 241*21/36 = 140 MPa = 20 ksi (without weld efficiency)

This is consistent with NSTX Criteria of 2/3 yield or 2/3 of 30ksi for annealed 304

With a weld efficiency of .7 the allowable is 14ksi, or 96 MPa

For fillets divide weld area by sqrt(2)

Rib Tab Weld Evaluation forWorst Case Power Supply Loads

Actual Weld Detail

Assume bevel backed by a fillet is like a full penetration. Tab weld Stresses all appear less than 96 MPa

Sri Checked Vessel Stresses with Correct NB Port, and Han’s Worst OOP Loads – Vessel Stress is OK.
TF Stress, - No Outer Leg OOP Support
