The article offers information on the significance of welding design to avoid fatigue failure of materials. It is vital for an individual to consider the performance of a weld under the cyclic load because when it is subjected to cyclic tensile or stress, there is a likelihood that it may fail. Because of its significance, various organizations developed standards including the American Institute of Steel Construction and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials.
