WELDED METAL STRUCTURES: APPROVAL CRITERIA FOR WELDABLE STEEL

CONSTRUCTIONS METALLIQUES SOUDEES: CRITERES D'AGREMENT DES ACIERS SOUDABLES

THE OBJECTIVE OF THE RESEARCH IS TO DEFINE WELDABILITY CRITERIA FOR HIGH ELASTIC LIMIT STEEL AND TO DEVELOP SIMULATION TESTS REPRESENTATIVE OF THE AREA THERMALLY AFFECTED. FOLLOWING THE WORK CARRIED OUT BY THE "COMMISSION D'AGREMENT ET DE CONTROLE DES ACIERS SOUDABLES" (COMMITTEE FOR THE APPROVAL AND CONTROL OF WELDABLE STEELS), IT IS ENVISAGED IN 1979: TO CONTINUE WELDABILITY TESTS (APPROVAL TESTS, MINI-JOMINY TESTS, ASTM TESTS) WITH A VIEW TO DEFINING CONSTRUCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS; TO STUDY TESTS FOR VERY HIGH-ELASTIC LIMIT STEELS.
