PREFACE This non-interpretive report contains the results of 90 tests on circular and oblong puddle weld connections. The connections involved test specimens constructed of flat steel plates and thin connecting sheets of varying thicknesses (10 to 28 gage) with the welds to be studied forning the bond between them. Testing consisted of tensile loading to ultimate failure. This work was carried out under contract with the Engineering Division of the American Iron and Steel Institute.
