Welding shear and normal stress calculations

  1. Jan 9, 2016 #1

    Does anybody know how to compute shear and normal stresses which take place due to applied load?

    My case is a simply supported beam (120x120x6.5 length: 4.2m) reinforced by a plate (20x120 length: 2m). Plate is welded on a top of a beam and external force (F=15 kN) is applied to the beam. Welding size is a=10mm. How to compute weld's shear and normal stresses?

    Beam and plate material is S355.

    Please, take a look at attached files.
