Electroslag welding came into practice in the mids. Electroslag is a generally fast welding process used to join large materials such as thick steel plates. These plates or materials are usually arranged in a vertical position, as the Electroslag weld is designed to weld at this angle without causing distortion to the welder.   Assuming backing is employed, a better technique is to reduce the root opening by depositing the weld on one of the two groove faces until the root opening has been reduced to an acceptable dimension. Do not weld the backing to both members, only weld it to the member that is being built up to correct the root opening.   a) 1 hour b) 2 hours c) 3 hours d) 4 hours e) 10 hours A drawing specifies a 3/8 inch fillet weld for a particular weld joint. What size fillet weld is necessary if a 1/8 inch root opening exists between the two pieces prior to welding? a) 3/4 inch b) 3/8 inch c) 1/2 inch d) 1/4 inch e) none of the above The most common types of welding are resistance welding (RW), oxyfuel gas welding (OFW), and arc welding (AW). Of the welding processes listed in. Figure , shielded metal arc welding, also called stick welding, is the most common welding process. Your primary concern as a Steelworker will be gas and arc welding, the difference being in.

  Figure illustrates two connections where the applied force, P, is concentric with the fillet weld group. In each case, the stress at any location equals the concentric force, P, divided by the area of the welds (sum of t e l for all weld segments).. Note that, for fillet welds, we do not differentiate between tensile and shear force. The welding geometry factor F 2 depends on the relation effective heat input to plate thickness. Approaching the three-dimensional heat flux F 2 decreases for the case of a one-pass fillet weld on a corner joint and increases for the one-pass fillet weld on a T-joint. Therefore an adaptive calculation may be necessary here. The factors given above can be selected here. Joining - welding, brazing, soldering, and adhesive bonding to form a permanent joint between parts Assembly - mechanical methods (usually) of fastening parts together Some of these methods allow for easy disassembly. 2 1. Overview • Welding – A joining process of two materials that coalesced at their contacting (faying) surfaces by the. The welding coarse-grained heat-affected zones (CGHAZs) in the undoped and Ce-doped samples of SACL-3 reactor pressure vessel steel were simulated using a Gleeble D thermomechanical.

Welding Current - Filler wire diameter - arc length - type of shielding - position of the weld Heat input is less than spray transfer - resulting in less distortion - Used in all positions due to controlling the weld metal freeze Power source - wire feeder - welding gun - Spooled filler wire - Shielding gas - and a ground A shielded metal arc welding operation is taking place on cast irons (look up the table in appendix) to produce a fillet weld (see below). The welding bead is a 90o isosceles triangle with 8 mm isosceles legs. The desired welding speed is around 30 mm/sec. The power supply is 12V.

Results of the study the welds of the Forged A shells are presented in this document. The low. Two problems are associated with welds in the austenitic stainless steels: 1) sensitization of the weld heat affected zone, and 2) hot cracking of weld metal.

SENSITIZATION: Sensitization leads to intergranular corrosion in the heat affected zone as shown in Figure 1. Sensitization is caused by chromium carbide formation and. Welding produces a solid connection between two pieces, called a weld joint. A weld joint is the junction of the edges or surfaces of parts that have been joined by welding.

This section covers two classifications related to weld joints: (1) types of joints and (2) the types of welds used to join the pieces that form the joints.

4- TYPES OF JOINTS. penetration groove weld shall be the thickness of the thinner part joined. No increase in the effective area for design calculations is permitted for weld reinforcement. Groove weld sizes for welds in T- Y- and K-connections in tubular members are shown in Table Fillet Welds Effective Throat Calculation.

Since there are two angles to be welded to the gusset plate, assume that total weld length for each angle will be in. As shown in the Figure above, 15 in. of 1/2 in. E70XX fillet weld can be placed in three ways (a), (b), and (c). Larger welds would be proportionate to the weld volume which is proportionate to the leg length squared.

so by this theory 3/8" is two/three pass, 1/2" is a 4 pass e.t.c. If the fillet weld ends up larger than 1/2" then I would normally use a butt weld. • Oxyfuel gas welding (OFW) makes use of the heat generated by an oxygen and acetylene gas (or other gas) flame to weld two components together.

Filler metal is supplied by a welding rod. This method is declining in use because of heat distortion, and because faster more economical methods are available. Methods for the calculation of fillet weld sizes are explained here.

High travel speeds equal low weld volume. Low weld volume means you’ll need to make more individual weld passes. Weave width or oscillation. The same idea applies to weave or oscillation as it does to travel speed.

The smaller the weave, the lower the volume; the lower the volume, the more individual weld passes you’ll need. Joint. If a material needs a large weld bead but heat input must be kept to a minimum then a multi pass weld would be used with adequate time for the temp to drop off and complete a new bead.

Calculations can be made to determine the size of the root required. i.e. a 1/2" root fillet of has the ability to hold lbs per linear inch of weld. Standard Calculation Procedure 1. Common solution for combined loading Loading in the plane perpendicular to the weld plane induces a tensile or pressure stress σ in the weld.

Normal stress caused by axial force F Z where: F Z axial force [N, lb]. A throat area of the weld. Welding is the process of joining two similar metals and it is applicable in most of the field like construction of bridges, huge buildings, railways, roadways, automotive and aircraft construction, pipe lines, tanks and vessels, machinery parts.

This article deals with the classification of welding methods, depending on the state of the material during welding: plastic or pressure welding. Start studying Welding drawing test (25 questions). Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools.

It is a process of joining two or more pieces of metal with the help of a laser beam. The weld of this type is formed as a result of a light beam falling on the metal. This process takes place in a few seconds. As a laser beam is monochromatic it will produce a large amount of heat after hitting the metal surface.

The results are as follows: 1) At the original " length, shear stresses barely register on the graph. The scope of the study described in this paper was to investigate the effect of different welding parameters on the magnitude and distribution of residual stresses.

gas metal arc welding (gmaw/mig). For thicknesses greater than and including 1/4" the maximum weld size is the thickness of the material - 1/16". So the maximum thickness of fillet weld for a 5/16" angle welded to a 3/16" tube is 3/16".

And the maximum weld for a 3/8" tube fillet welded to a 5/16" tube is 1/4". When welding with a gas-shielded welding process, the area in which welding is being done shall be protected from drafts which can cause loss of the gas shield.

Wind velocities in excess of 5 mph are high enough for this to happen, resulting in surface oxidation of the weld .where the weld cycle is repetitive (control set on “REPEAT”). Weld Current is the current in the welding circuit during the making of a weld. The amount of weld current is controlled by two things: first, the setting of the transformer tap switch determines the maximum amount of weld current available; second, the % current control.Consider the two assemblies shown in Figures 1 and 2.

The weld sizes would be computed as follows: Using an E70 electrode (E48), and with L = 4” (mm, m), what weld size is needed to resist the applied load of 40 kips ( kN)?
