The residual stress distribution for a circumferential weld between cylinders was obtained in a prior publication for a full penetration, single pass weld with no variation of alloy content across the weld. In the present work the approach is extended to cover a wider variety of weld conditions. It is shown that the effects of multipass welds, partial penetration welds, and welds with filler metal differing greatly in properties from the base metal can approximately be taken into account. Experimental results are presented to support the proposed method of analysis.
