The relationship between the geometric parameters of α, β, γ and τ of tubular T joints and chord stress concentration factor, SCF, has been investigated. With the use of calculated values as well as experimental data tables were compiled for a wide variety of cases when axial loading on the branch is applied. Finally, a probability analysis is given as to the reliability of using a particular SCF value.
