Defects / Hydrogen Cracks in Steels - Identification - TWI
Preheating to avoid hydrogen cracking Hydrogen cracking may also be called cold cracking or delayed cracking.The principal distinguishing feature of this type of crack is that it occurs in ferritic steels,most often immediately on welding or a short time after welding.Handling HSLA - Welding ProductivityHigh-strength low-alloy (HSLA) steels are one option. The properties of HSLA steels allow them to be thin and lightweight without sacrificing strength or toughness. As a result, HSLA steels can help companies reduce the weight and, therefore, costs for material transport; this is especially advantageous in the case of contractors moving Welding HSLA Steels TWI
Handling HSLA - Welding Productivity
Basics of HSLA SteelsBest PracticesFiller Metal OptionsAchieving SuccessBecause of their higher strength-to-weight ratio and specific mechanical properties,HSLA steels are well-suited for applications where the material must withstand lower temperature environments as well as those that require higher abrasion and corrosion resistance.HSLA steels are typically low in carbon and contain alloying elements such as nickel,chromium,molybdenum,niobium and vanadium,which increase strength and toughness for better impact resistance.Another common alloying element is titanSee more on weldingproductivityWelding of HSLA Steels imagesWELDING HIGH STRENGTH STEELS Fabricating andAs an example,when welding a HSLA steel (85 ksi yield strength) to A36 steel (36 ksi yield strength minimum),welders would choose a 70 grade flux-cored or metal-cored wire with 70 ksi tensile strength.Note Base material is measured in yield strength,but filler metals are measured in UTS or ultimate tensile strength.Hardness,microstructure and toughness in steel HAZ - TWIFor carbon-manganese steels,a relationship between composition (CE value),cooling rate and microstructural hardness level has been established.This relationship has been used in constructing welding diagrams for these steels,in order to avoid fabrication hydrogen cracking of
