Fillet weld is a common method of connecting various elements of the steel structures as in T- or butt joints. Thus, estimation of the amounts and distributions of residual stresses in these connections are important. Effects of complete and non-complete ends of T-joint, curvature of the ends, welding procedure, thickness ratio and welding speed on the distribution of the residual stresses were studied numerically and experimentally. The numerical analyses are done by using the finite element method. The center hole drilling method is used to measure of the residual stresses. A 3D model in Sysweld with thermo-mechanical analysis has been carried out to modeling the welding of stainless steel. There are good agreements between the results of two methods. Longitudinal residual stresses reduce in the midsection while transverse stresses increase in the end zone of the weld with complete end.
