WELDING OF AUSTENITIC MANAGANESE STEEL--SOME EXPERIMENTS INCLUDING A WELDING OF CROSSINGS

This report, a supplement to previous papers, includes three sections on the welding of austenitic manganese steel. First the effects of silicon and phosphorus in the base metal on cracking suceptibility of welds are compared and discussed, based on slit-type and angle-expanding-type (modified Murex-type) cracking tests. Then the manual and automatic gas shielded arc welding of manganese steel to carbon steel is described. Finally the properties of a sort of delayed cracking observed in a 16 Mn, 16 Cr type weld metal and its prevention, which are applicable to the welding of manganese steel crossing frogs to carbon steel rails are investigated. The welds have shown good performance in a field test.
