... Abstract Cold cracking of structural steel weldments is a well-documented failure mechanism, and extensive work has been done to recognize welding and materials selection parameters associated with it. These efforts, however, have not fully eliminated the occurrence of such failures...

... of the injuries sustained by the driver. The faulty welds in the unit body were apparently a consequence of improper settings of parameters on a multihead electrical resistance spot welding machine. Lack of appreciation of the hazard associated with failure of this weldment may have contributed to the low...

... martensite on subsequent cooling to room temperature. The confinement of the cracking to the HAZ of the weldment and no observable damage in the other zones of the weld joint, along with the absence of inclusions, second phase particles or hydrogen pickup therefore suggest that the main cause of failure...

.... The weldments were finally secured to the bases of the turbine blades by a brazing operation. One of the laser beam attachment welds broke after a 28-h engine test run. Exposure of the fracture surface for study under the electron microscope revealed the joint had broken in stress rupture. Failure was caused...

It was indicated by the coarse as-rolled structure (grain size of ASTM 00 to 4) of the base metal that the weldment (stop block and guide) had not been normalized. The brittle failure was evaluated to have been initiated at a metallurgical and mechanical...

.... Because only a small amount of weldment area was available for metallographic examination at location B ( Fig. 2 ), a detailed examination of the weldment could not be carried out at the location nearest to failure. A similar martensitic austenitic stainless steel weld, available on the other junction...
