In this paper, we report results of stress analysis and fatigue life assessment of a number of spot weld joints. Models are presented for corrugated plates, jointed to an L-shape plate using 7 and 14 spot welds, which are subject to four different types of alternating loading conditions. The analyses are based on the solutions obtained from the ANSYS7 finite element package, using solid elements. In this study, strains and stresses in the weld nugget are evaluated. However, the primary focus is on strain-based fatigue life assessment which considers the 3D state of stress around the weld nugget and the nonlinear effects of the materical and the geometry.
