Eurocode 3 Weld Strength

Section 4 of the standard EN 1993-1-8:2005 Design of joints is implemented to verify the structure stability of each structural member (weld).

To add the standard execute Standard - Eurocode3 - Eurocode3 Welds (EN 1993-1-8, 2005) from the main menu.


Common options are described in the Weld Strength Settings chapter.

Press to set a Correlation factor (Beta_w):

Beta_w factor is obtained from the Table 4.1, section and depends on the material type:


Gamma_M2 - material resistance factor for plated structures is a constant value (=1.25) and used in calculations to check a base material strength.

Standard uses material data (Yield/Tensile) in calculations. Wizard checks if the values are defined for all materials.

Checks are created automatically and divided into few parts:
