This article focuses on the tests for evaluating the weldability, cracking susceptibility, weld pool shape, fluid flow, and weld penetration of base materials. These tests include different types of self-restraint tests, externally loaded tests for evaluating cracking susceptibility and weld penetration tests, weld pool shape tests, and Gleeble testing for evaluating weld pool shape, fluid flow, and weld penetration.
