Tensile tests using welded joint specimens with a surface flaw were conducted in order to study the large deformation behavior and ductile fracture of welded structural component with a flaw. Two types of 490MPa class steel plates with different yield strength are prepared for this study. The surface flaw was introduced at the center of welded metal of welded joint specimen. Strain distribution during loading and the maximum strain at ductile fracture of specimen were measured in order to investigate the influence of stress-strain properties on ductile fracture behavior of the welded joint. Three dimensional elastoplastic finite element analyses were also carried out by using the welded joint specimen models in order to calculate the detailed stress and strain distributions around notch tip. In addition, a simplified analytical model to estimate fracture strain and critical flaw size of the welded joint was proposed using the stress-strain relationship combination between base material and welded metal by Swift’s equation. The results from the analytical model show fairly good agreement with experimental results.
