Abstract Scope While there is extensive research aimed at understanding and improving LME resistance, the effects of LME cracks on performance should also be considered. Previous assessment of the mechanical performance of LME cracks via tensile-shear and cross-tension tests did not indicate significant degradation for cracks smaller than 300 μm. However, due to the complex loading of spot welds in certain applications, it is necessary to test other loading modes and low temperature conditions. In the present work, the quasi-static strength of spot welded specimens from galvanized TRIP1180 steel was tested using three configurations: cross-tension, coach-peel, and flange-tensile with various LME crack lengths. Each configuration and crack size was tested at room temperature, -10, and -40°C and then compared to crack-free welds using load data and fractography. Additionally, finite element models were developed to provide insight on critical crack configurations and orientations that affect performance as a function of loading mode.
