The efforts by the Budapest Research Institute for the steel industry to develop a technique for welding Hadfields steel to ordinary rail steel so as to enable these fishplated joints to be eliminated have been successful, and patent rights have been taken out. The process developed by Kalman and Kisfaludy enables welding to be carried out without allotropic conversions taking place, and the two types of steel can be welded without difficulty. Joints welded in this way have been submitted to a mechanical bending-rupture test with 1-m separation of the supports. The joints withstood the specified 15 mm buckling with cracks. These joints have already been in service without a failure for over a year.
