About the Edition

The factors that affect strength and toughness often ultra-low carbon steel weld samples (HSLA-80 and HSLA-100), welded using the gas metal arc welding (GMAW) process and new ultra-low carbon consumable electrodes, were studied. The analysis was confined only to the weld metal, and the base metal was not considered. Analysis methods included optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, and transmission electron microscopy. Energy dispersive x- ray analysis was performed in the transmission electron microscope to analyze the chemical composition of non-metallic inclusions. The microstructure was found to be primarily granular ferrite with some primary ferrite, bainite, and martensite. Very little acicular ferrite was found (< 18 %). Because of this, to get the best mechanical properties in the weld, the size and volume fraction of non-metallic inclusions needs to be minimized. This can be accomplished by minimizing the amount of oxygen while increasing the amount of titanium and aluminum in the weld metal. EDX analysis revealed that the non-metallic inclusions were multi-phase particles with two predominant phases: a TiO-MnO phase and a MnO-SiO2-Al2O3, phase. Copper-sulfide caps were also found on the surface of some inclusions. This inclusion chemistry is typical of what is found in welding HSLA steel.

Based on TMCP and UFC technology, the microstructures and impact toughness of low carbon bainitic steel were studied in this paper. The bainite morphology and fracture surfaces of Charpy impact specimens were observed by SEM, and mechanical properties of bainitic steel were measured by tensile and impact test. The results showed that the yield and tensile strengths of steel were MPa and Cited by: 1. Martensite is the hardest structure that is formed by the transformation of austenite by rapid cooling below a temperature about °F to °F. Martensite formation in an alloy imposes greater hardness and strength but reduces the ductility and toughness.

The factors that affect strength and toughness often ultra-low carbon steel weld samples (HSLA and HSLA), welded using the gas metal arc welding (GMAW) process and new ultra-low carbon consumable electrodes, were studied.

The analysis was confined only to the weld metal, and the base metal was not : The factors affecting the C VN toughness of ultra low carbon weld metals are the strength, the size and distribution of non-metallic inclusions, and the final solidified microstructure.[Ref.l7] Increasing strength and carbon content lead to reduced toughness.

Higher carbon content metals tend form harder and more brittle microstructures.

FACTORS AFFECTING TOUGHNESS IN WELDED STEELS Many low alloy additions increase hardenability by making more difficult the nucleation and/or growth of the higher temperature transformation products, such as ferrite and by: ABSTRACT.

Low-fracture toughness has been correlated with brittle zones in the HAZ of low-carbon microalloyed steels. This investigation has focused on two aspects of that problem: 1) The extent and the properties of the brittle zones as a function of heat input, refinement by subsequent weld layers and postweld heat Size: 1MB.

The effects of strength-mismatch between the base and weld metal in welded joints on CTOD and Charpy impact toughness of heat-affected zone (HAZ) are investigated in this study. Both toughness properties are compared, in consideration of the effect of the local brittle zone (LBZ) in HAZ, and strength-mismatch effects are discussed analytically.

Factors Influencing Toughness of Flash Butt Weld of High Strength Steel Generally speaking, the toughness of the heat-affected zone (HAZ) of high-strength steel is largely determined by the welding heat input and the steel’s chemical composition.

However, in the case of flash butt welding, which is a kind of pressure welding, the. Carbon. Carbon is alloyed with iron to increase hardness and strength and the level of carbon is dependent on the potential application for the steel. As the level of carbon in different steels increases, so do the potential problems which can adversely affect weld quality.

This study is concerned with a correlation of fracture toughness with microstructural factors in heat-affected zones (HAZs) of a normalized high-strength low-alloy (HSLA) steel. In order to explain weld joint performance, tensile and plane strain fracture toughness tests were conducted for the simulated coarse-grained HAZ by: loyed gas metal arc steel weld deposits are obtained when the unbalance factor is approximately equal to ppm.

These factors include, but are not limited to, the type of steel, type of weld, loading on the welded joint, applicable codes, level of preheat, level of restraint, position of welding, condition of the steel, and service Size: 2MB.

Influence of Carbon Content on Toughness of Microalloyed Direct-Heat-Treated Steels The hardness and mechanical strength of ferrite-pearlite DHT steels increase with increasing carbon or carbon-equivalent alloy elements. However, their impact toughness decreases as strength. The strength of carbon steel is affected by many factors, some of which deal with how the steel is alloyed and others that deal with what happens after the steel is created.

One of the main factors affecting the strength of carbon steel is the amount of carbon added to iron before steel is made. NIPPON STEEL & SUMITOMO METAL TECHNICAL REPORT No. FEBRUARY and misalignment of girth welds; the effects of these factors on ε c have been studied.

The weldability, also known as joinability, of a material refers to its ability to be metals and thermoplastics can be welded, but some are easier to weld than others (see Rheological weldability).A material's weldability is used to determine the welding process and to compare the final weld quality to other materials.

Unfortunately, commercial filler metals specifically. Restraint level – The level of restraint is determined by the stress and strain state of a weld resulting from factors such as clamping and fixturing, geometry of weld joint, thickness and strength of the base metal, presence of weld discontinuities and residual stress.

Out of the three factors this is typically the one that is hardest to control. emphasize that the type of protective gas also affects metal weld toughness. Figure 3 presents the values of weld metal toughness (E u) at +20 0C and C for all compositions of gas mixtures.
