Experimental techniques. Part 1 C-Mn weld metals: Manganese and carbon; Effects of welding process variables; Effects of heat treatment; Silicon and impurities; Nitrogen and strain ageing. Part 2 Low alloy steel weld metals: Single additions: With varying manganese; Elements in combination – Cr-Mo. Part 3 High purity weld metal: Titanium; Combinations with oxygen; Combinations with nitrogen. Part 4 Microalloying of C-Mn steel weld metals: Single microaolloying elements (with and without titanium); Combinations of microalloying elements. Part 5 Microalloying of high purity low alloy steel weld metals: Titaniumm and single additions of Cr, Mo, Ni and Cu; Titanium and multiple alloying elements: Mn-Ni-Mo weld metals. Part 6 Metallography: Metallographic features.


The book describes the results of over 20 years research completed this year at one of the world's premier consumable manufacturers and aimed at improving the properties of MMA electrodes for high quality applications. It examines the influence of some 17 elements and welding variables on the composition, microstructure and mechanical properties of the resulting weld metal. The often complex relationships discovered are sufficient to give a good understanding of the properties of weld metals produced by other arc welding processes.
