Welding Deformation Of Steel Structure

Welding of steel structure welded steel structure is widely used, and full penetration welding is used for some important welds. In the process of local heating and melting during metal welding, the temperature of the metal in the heating zone is very different from that of the surrounding parent material, resulting in instantaneous stress in the welding process.

After cooling to the original temperature, the tensile stress zone of the whole joint area and the near seam area is in balance with the value of the mother material in the compressive stress zone, resulting in the welding residual stress of the structure itself.

At this point, the welding joint structure takes many forms of deformation under the action of welding stress. The existence and deformation of residual stresses are mutually transformed, and it is not difficult to find a way to prevent and correct the deformation.


Forms and causes of welding deformation:

The deformation of steel structure after welding can be divided into two kinds: the deformation of the whole structure and the deformation of the structure. The deformation of the whole structure includes the longitudinal and transverse shortening and bending of the structure. The local deformation is convex, wavy, angular deformation and so on.


Common basic forms of deformation.

The basic forms of common welding deformation are as follows: the length of the plate groove is shortened (longitudinal shrinkage) and the width is narrow (transverse shrinkage); The Angle deformation after butt welding of plate groove;

The distortion of the angular deformation along the longitudinal direction of the component along the longitudinal axis of the component and the longitudinal contraction of the component flange and the web is distorted.

The wave distortion formed by the buckling of the plate surface due to instability due to the instability of the pressure zone of the laminates. Due to the longitudinal and transverse contraction of the weld, the integral bending of the component is caused by the asymmetry of the neutral axis of the component, and this deformation is bent.


Reasons for welding deformation:

  • In the welding process, the partial and uneven heating of welding parts is the cause of welding stress and deformation. Near the welding seam and the weld metal is heated area expansion, due to a cold metal stop this expansion, occurs in welding area compression stress and plastic shrinkage deformation, has a different degree of transverse and longitudinal shrinkage. Due to the contraction of these two directions, various deformation of welding structure is caused.
  • The longitudinal shrinkage deformation of the welding seam is compensated by using the component reserved length method.
  • To minimize the number and size of welds in design; Reasonable layout of the weld, in addition to avoid the weld density, should also make the weld position as close to the axis of the components as possible, and make the weld layout and components.
  • Select the welding sequence correctly. In the steel structure, when there is a weld and fillet weld, in principle, the weld shall be welded to the weld and the arc weld. For the cruciform and t-type welds, the correct order should be taken to avoid welding stress concentration and ensure the welding quality of joints. It is advantageous to reduce deformation by adopting the welding of the neutral axis of the whole steel structure and taking the welding from the middle phase. Welding of important parts in steel structure with high strength should be free to contract and not be restrained
