The research aims to study and simulation weld joint type Double –Fillet Tee
Joint ,It was studied stress concentration along the weld area and calculate the
required weld size under effect variable loads (1,2,4)kN by using Finite Element
Method through a program Solidwork Simulation 2013.
It has been identified weld size (4mm) as the value of fixed for all loads, this value
is proposed from welding of scientists as the default value ranging (4-10)mm and
used a feature (Edge Weld Check Plot) in solidwork program .
It has compared the theoretical results with the analytical results ,the ratio of error
was less than (2%) .
It has simulation by draw 3D solid model and convert it to shell model with loads
and fixture .
The results showed that the maximum value of the stress is (10)N / mm
under load
(4)kN and less thickness necessary for the welding connection is 0.132mm under
load (1)kN The more load on joint weld will increases weld size required without
The research supplies recommendations for precision of solidwork simulation to be
used as design device calculate the joints.
