This is the second part of a study of thermal stresses and metal movement during welding. Part I described the finite-element analysis of two-dimensional thermal stresses and metal movement during bead-on-plate and butt welding. Part II presents results of experiments on bead-on-plate and butt welds in 6061-T6 aluminum alloy. Measurements were made of changes of temperature, thermal strains, and metal movement during welding. The paper then compares experimental data with analytical results. Good agreements were obtained between experimental and analytical results.
