CORROSION PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH WELDMENTS

Weld corrosion has existed as a problem ever since the first joining of materials by welding and brazing processes. Weld area and stress-associated corrosion can be reduced for most alloy systems by properly matching parent and weld consumable (filler) metals and by specifying appropriate welding and manufacturing methods. A review is presented of the effects of composition, structural variations, intergranular cracking, weld decay, fusion line attack and residual stress.
