Abstract: In this paper, the recent advances in weld residual stress modeling procedures are first reviewed within the context of pressure vessel and piping applications. A typical pipe girth weld was then used as an example to highlight some of the critical issues in weld residual stress prediction, measurement, and residual stress effects on various aspects of fracture behaviors from stress intensity factor solutions for a growing crack to crack-opening displacement calculations for leak-before-break assessment.
