ARC WELDING OF WEATHERING STEELS

BECAUSE OF THE INCREASED USE OF WEATHERING STEELS IN THE UNPAINTED CONDITION IN WELDED STRUCTURES, THERE HAS BEEN CONSIDERABLE INTEREST IN THE WEATHERING APPEARANCE OF THE WELD AND BASE METAL. ATMOSPHERIC EXPOSURE SPECIMENS WERE PREPARED USING A NUMBER OF COMMERCIAL ELECTRODES. THE RESULTS AFTER TWO YEARS OF EXPOSURE ARE PRESENTED. CLOSE MATCHING OF WELD DEPOSIT AND BASE METAL COMPOSITIONS RESULT IN UNIFORMITY OF COLOR THROUGHOUT THE EXPOSURE PERIOD. AN EVALUATION TO DEVELOP A SUBMERGED-ARC WELDING PROCEDURE THAT PROVIDES A WELD DEPOSIT OF A SIMILAR COMPOSITION TO THAT OF THE BASE PLATE IS DESCRIBED. FINALLY, A WELDABILITY STUDY ON A NEW HIGHER STRENGTH VANADIUM-MODIFIED WEATHERING STEEL WAS CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE PROPER WELDING RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THIS GRADE. /AUTHOR/
