Manual metal arc welding have been applied, on the basis of microstructural control, for a range of plate thicknesses, edge preparations and welding positions, on 50d (c-mn-nb-al) steel using an "aws E7018" c-mn electrode. Tensile, impact, hardness and toughness properties of welds were sufficient to meet offshore and other stringent requirements. Defect tolerance was sufficient to ensure safety after standard NDT procedures. Order from NSFI as No. 16606.
