T Fillet Weld - Formula for calculating the stresses in a fillet weld.
Lap Fillet Weld - Formula for calculating the stresses in lap fillet welds subject to shear.
Cantilever - Fillet welded cantilever subject to bending and shear
Lap Joint Subject To Torsion - Fillet welded lap subject to Torsion and shear
Rectangular Block Subject To Torsion - Rectangular and fillet welded and subject to Torsion T Butt Weld Subject To Torsion - Full Penetration T Butt welded Cantilever subject to Torsion Lap Joint Subject To Bending and Shear - This calculation method is one I came up with. Unfortunately I couldn't find a similar joint in any technical reference to verify it.

The website http://www.gowelding.com/calcs/ provides a collection of welding-related calculators for various purposes. The calculators on the website cover different aspects of welding, including weld cost estimation, weld volume calculation, heat input calculation, and more. Here is a summary of the calculators available on the website:

  1. Weld Cost Calculator: This calculator helps estimate the cost of welding by considering factors such as welding process, filler material, labor rate, and welding speed.

  2. Weld Volume Calculator: This calculator determines the volume of weld metal required for a given joint by taking into account the joint type, weld size, and length.

  3. Heat Input Calculator: This calculator calculates the heat input during welding by considering the welding process, welding parameters, and travel speed.

  4. Welding Amps to Metal Thickness Calculator: This calculator provides an estimation of the appropriate welding amperage based on the metal thickness and welding process.

  5. Welding Gas Flow Rate Calculator: This calculator determines the required flow rate of shielding gas during welding based on factors such as welding process, electrode size, and welding position.

  6. Welding Preheat Temperature Calculator: This calculator helps determine the recommended preheat temperature for welding based on the base material, welding process, and thickness.

  7. Welding Rod Efficiency Calculator: This calculator calculates the efficiency of a welding rod by considering the weight of the deposited weld metal and the weight of the consumed rod.

  8. Welding Electrode Cost Calculator: This calculator estimates the cost of welding electrodes based on factors such as electrode type, diameter, and length.

These calculators provide useful tools for welders and welding professionals to perform various calculations related to welding processes, costs, and parameters.

Where is the spread sheet calculator? It send me to a website where half the text is cut off?
