ABSTRACT
  It is well known that there exist two typical fatigue crack initiation locations in ship structures: one is the weld toe and the other is the weld root where partial penetration weld is performed. In particular, it is important for fillet weldments to avoid weld root cracking in order to prevent catastrophic failure particularly in ship structures. Therefore detail considerations are required for cruciform joints with partial penetration when there is a possibility of weld root crack initiation. For these reasons, fatigue tests on welded joints were performed in this study. Concept of stress intensity factor(SIF) by means of fracture mechanics is applied for predicting fatigue life of fillet welded joints.
