Importance of Root Fusion

Depth of Penetration Affects Weld Strength When welds are sized from a design standpoint, the theoretical throat is used to calculate weld strength.  This means that the desired strength of a weld is achieved by attaining fusion at the root and side walls. Before going on we’ll define fusion and penetration as these terms are not […]
