CJP Weld Strength

CJP Weld Strength

CJP Weld Strength

How do you calculate the capacity of a CJP weld that has tension and shear acting on it? Everything I have found has individual checks for welds that only have tension or shear but not both.

RE: CJP Weld Strength

Loading of welds with Eccentricity Normal to the Plane of the Faying Surface is on page 8-14 of the Steel Construction Manual (13th Edition). It is treated similarly to that as Eccentricity in the Plane of the Faying Surface.

If it is a CJP groove weld, failure is controlled by the base metal per Table J2.5
