In this study, endurance limit and fatigue behavior of load carrying fillet welded cruciform joints depending on commonly used welding methods such as SMAW, SAW, MIG and FCAW are investigated. In respect of endurance limit, SMAW specimen showes highest result, and then MIG, SAW, FCAW in descending order. However, SMAW specimen showes lowest crack growth rate and it followed by MIG, FCAW, SAW. By these results, it is needed to use SMAW or MIG welding methods for welding structures with small welding capacity and SAW or FCAW methods for large welding structures with respect to economic benefits and operation efficiency of welding. It was also shown fatigue crack growth rate was more influenced by the strenght of welding materials than the endurance limit of welding materials.
