Residual stress distribution in an oblique nozzle jointed to a vessel with J-groove welds was analyzed using a three-dimensional finite element method. All welding passes were considered in a 180-degree finite element (FE) model with symmetry. Temperature and stress were modeled for simultaneous bead laying. To determine residual stress distributions at the welds experimentally, a mock-up specimen was manufactured. The analytical results show good agreement with the experimental measurement data, indicating that FE modeling is valid.
