The paper presents the procedure of creating a geometric model of the weld surface from 3D scan data. The geometric model is used to calculate the stress concentration on the real weld surface. The stress concentration on the weld surface affects the fatigue properties of the welds and the initiation of damage from the weld surface. In MATLAB, the 3D scan data of the weld surface is processed and the file with geometry for program ADINA is created. Next step is stress concentration analysis in the weld in the software ADINA.
