METALLURGICAL QUALITY OF STEELS USED FOR HULL CONSTRUCTION

This is the final progress report on this project and is a continuation of the phase of the investigation discussed in the previous progress report, that is, a study of the influence of chemical composition with the object being to develop a hot-rolled steel with high yield strength and a low level of crack sensitivity that is satisfactory for welded construction. In addition to chemical composition, the results of commercial homogenizing tests are discussed as well as the influence of electrode coatings upon underbead cracking. In order to summarize the work of this project, a final summary report (SSC-26) will be published covering both the results of this investigation and the preceding project on this subject which was conducted for the OSRD as Project NRC-87.
