Validation of defect assessment method for structures with weldments

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The defect assessment procedure for structures with significant strength mismatch, resulting from the Brute-Euram SINTAP protect, is validated against testing data of mismatched specimens with idealised weldments. It provides confidence in the use of the proposed method for assessing defective weld strength mismatched structures.
