- A method for simulating welding defect of slags or incomplete fusion is raised in this research. Experiments on seven full-size members were conducted.The research shows that the length of the welding defect is related to the decrease of the ultimate bearing capacity of the members under the static axial load.In some case, it may be the main factor to reduce the bearing capacity, which mayeven be lower than the code limits so attention should be paid to engineering application.
