I've looked everywhere and can't seem to find any information.

Would someone be kind enough to point me to some literature?

I think ASME, SAE and AWS would have specific standards.

There may be examples in this publication - For example, see - STRENGTH REDUCTION EFFECTS AND OTHER CONCERNS WHEN WELDING UNDER LOAD

It's usually material and geometry dependent, but then there are environmental effects as well.

By welded edge, is one thinking of lap joints or butt joints?
