FILLET WELD SHEAR
Fillet weld shear is one of the most considered subjects in strength calculations. In EN 1993-1-8 are described two methods – directional and simplified methods. At the bottom of this article is available program which uses simplified method. In case of applying different materials remember about using material with lower strength parameters. According to Eurocode fillet weld can be used for angular connected parts within 60o to 120o. Angles below 60o is also accepted, but weld should be treated as butt weld with partial penetration. For angles above 120o weld design resistance should be checked according to test in EN 1990. Beyond fillet weld with effective length lower than max (30 mm; 6*a) should not carry load.
