Laser-arc hybrid welding is a high-quality welding technology and is expected to improve the productivity of manufacturing hull and offshore structures. Application of this technology allows the replacement of fillet-welded joints in structures with full-penetration welded joints. The fatigue performance and deformation caused by welding will be improved by this replacement. The present study experimentally investigates the fatigue performance and deformation due to welding. Two types of tee joints, which penetrate from one side and both sides, were applied. The investigations confirm the superiority of full-penetration tee joints fabricated by laser-arc hybrid welding over conventional fillet-welded joints.
