The possibilities for producing optimized welded structures in high-strength steel and aluminium by use of the newest technology, including high-productivity fabrication methods (robot technology), are studied in this project. Of special interest in this connection are the fatigue properties of the structures, especially the fatigue life at a realistic stochastic loading. In the project, the fatigue life is determined both in experimental investigations and analytically by use of fracture mechanics.
