Özet

Resistance spot welding is the most preferred and widely used method for joining metal sheets in automotive and many other industrial assembly operations. Spot-welded joints are usually the weakest parts of structures leading to fatigue failure under fluctuating loads. Increasing the fatigue strength of the joints through geometrical changes will also increase the overall integrity of the whole structure.
