Abstract

This article reviews the metallurgical factors associated with welding. It provides a discussion on the preferential attack associated with weld metal precipitates in austenitic stainless steels. The article describes the corrosion associated with postweld and weld backing rings. The effects of gas-tungsten arc weld shielding gas composition and heat-tint oxides on corrosion resistance are also discussed. The article explains microbiological corrosion of butt welds in water tanks with the examples. In addition, it provides information on corrosion of ferritic stainless steel weldments and duplex stainless steel weldments.
