Influence of Welding on Steel Weldment Properties
This article describes the fundamental and specific factors that control the properties of steel weldments in both the weld metal and heat-affected zone (HAZ) of carbon and low-alloy steels. It provides information on steel types and their weldability. The article also explains the influence of welding procedure factors on the weldment properties. These procedure factors include preheat temperature, interpass temperature, postweld heat treatment, and heat input.
