Welding of Thin Steel Plates Using Submerged Arc Welding Process(Physics, Process, Instrument & Measurements)
Search this Article
The limitation to use submerged arc welding process in welding of thin steel plates (e.g., 3mm thickness) is considered to be one of the disadvantage of this process. In welding of thin plate using square-groove butt joint, there is some problems like lack of penetration or burn through as a result of small change in welding variables, which must be controlled to reach the optimum welding conditions. The problem was solved and the optimum welding conditions for full penetration, i.e good penetration and good reinforcment height were reached. These welding conditions include the welding parameters, type of proper backing material and type of flux.
