For design and economic reasons, higher tensile structural steels with a varying range of notch toughness requirements are being increasingly used by shipbuilders. The necessary weld metal properties must be obtained by the accepted welding practices, namely two-pass, two-sided butt welding procedures in order to achieve continuous production. This article summarizes the role and types of higher tensile structural steels used for shipbuilding and discusses several factors that must be considered in order to achieve economic production welding, with the desired weld metal properties.
