Effect of Gas-Shielded Flux Cored Arc Welding Parameters on Weld Width and Tensile Properties of Weld Metal in a Low Carbon Steel
H.R. Ghazvinloo and A. Honarbakhsh Raouf

Abstract:
Generally, the quality of a weld joint is strongly influenced by process parameters during the welding process. In order to achieve high quality welds, the bead geometry and mechanical properties of the weldments should be provided accuracy. The present study highlights an experimental study carried out to analyze the effects of various FCAW welding parameters on weld width and tensile properties of weld metal extracted of a butt joint. The welding current, arc voltage and welding speed were chosen as variable parameters and due to high application in industry; welding assemblies were prepared from low carbon steel. The welding currents were chosen as 240, 280, 320 A, arc voltages were chosen as 26, 30 and 34 V and welding speeds were chosen as 40, 50 and 60 cm min-1 for all experiments. The results of this study helps in selecting welding process parameters to achieve the desired geometry and tensile properties for weld quickly.
