Dissimilar metal welding applications require careful control over the welding parameters and corresponding dilution level in order to produce welds with proper microstructure and properties for the intended service. This article reviews the relation between the dilution and bulk fusion-zone compositions and describes the effect of fusion welding parameters on dilution. It also provides typical examples of the microstructure and property control in dissimilar weld applications.
