A deep understanding of the manufacturing process is needed in order to achieve safety and quality requirements for parts and components; to this regard, residual stresses play an important role in welded structures. Residual stresses are mainly caused by the extremely severe thermal cycle to which the welded metal and base material are subjected to during welding process and their knowledge leads to a better static and fatigue assessment of welded joints. This work deals with the study of residual stresses for a tube to plate T-joint, made of S355JR carbon steel. The work was carried out by both numerical simulations and experimental tests. The numerical simulations were performed by Ansys FE code through a structural-thermal full transient analysis to evaluate stress, strain and temperature in each node at each step of the simulation. The “birth and death” method was employed, together with temperature-dependent material properties.A2Danda3D simulation were performed, in order to evaluate possible diﬀerences due to the welding process. Numerical results were compared to some preliminary measurements obtained through an incremental cut made on the plate.
