What is the effect of joint spacing on joint tensile strength?

To determine

The effect of joint spacing on the tensile strength of the joint.

Explanation

The joints made with the help of soldering and brazing are made with the help of filler material. The filler material seeps into the space between the joints through the capillary action.

The capillary action is defined as the force that acts on the meniscus of liquid. When the adhesion force is greater than the cohesion force, the liquid climbs up the walls due to this capillary action.

Figure 1: The capillary action which pulls the water into a thin tube.

The ability of a joint to resist the force of tension or the force of pull is known as the tensile strength of the joint. A joint produced by the brazing process has more tensile strength than the tensile strength of the filler material.

The added strength of the joint is obtained due to the surface tension of the liquid filler material...
