# Overlapping Plates - Axial Force on Fillet Weld 1

## Overlapping Plates - Axial Force on Fillet Weld 1 formula

\(\large{ \sigma = \frac{F_a}{ h\;l } }\) |

### Where:

\(\large{ \sigma }\) (Greek symbol sigma) = stress in weld

\(\large{ F_a \left( P \right) }\) = total applied force

\(\large{ h }\) = weld root thickness

\(\large{ l }\) = length of weld
