Question:-
A butt welded joint, subjected to tensile force P is shown in the given figure, i= length of the weld (in mm) h=throat of the butt weld (in mm) and H is the total height of weld including reinforcement. The average tensile stress st in the weld is given by

Option (A)
st (P/Hl)
Option (B)
st = (P/hl)
Option(C)
st = (P/2Hl)
Option(D)
st = (2P/hl)
Correct Option:
(B)
Question Solution:
Because throat area is the minimum area and Athroat = h x L
