An effect of finishing welded parts on the fatigue strength of cruciform welded joints with full penetration, which are used for beam-to-column connections in steel bridge bents, has been examined by conducting the fatigue tests and finite element stress analyses using model specimens. In these examinations, the direction of load is made into two which is the direction of a beam and the direction of a column. The model specimens used have finished weld toes of as-welded connections, finished weld toes of connections with equal leg length by additional weld, or round shaped weld by finishing the whole welded part smoothly.
