DOUBLE FILLET WELDING OF CARBON STEEL T-JOINT BY DOUBLE CHANNEL SHIELDING GAS METAL ARC WELDING

What is it about?

Low carbon steel material and T-joints are frequently used in shipbuilding and steel constructions. Advantages such as high deposition rates, high quality and smooth weld metals and easy automation make cored wires preferable in these industries. In this study, low carbon steel materials with web and flange thicknesses of 6 mm, 8 mm and 10 mm were welded with conventional GMAW and double channel shielding gas metal arc welding (DMAG) method to form double fillet T-joints using metal-cored wire. The difference between these two methods was characterized by measurements of mean welding parameters, Vickers hardness profiles, weld bead and HAZ geometry of the joints and thermal camera temperature measurements.
