The Effect of Post Weld Heat Treatment on Mechanical Properties of Friction-Welded Alloy 718 and SNCRW Stainless Steel
The effect of post weld heat treatment on mechanical properties of friction welded Alloy 718 and SNCRW was investigated. Friction welding tests were carried out at a constant rotation speed and pressure. Optimum friction condition was found to be the friction pressure of 25kg/cm2, friction time of 40sec, upset pressure of 80 kg/cm2, and dwell time of 5sec. After friction welding tests, post weld heat treatments were performed in the temperature range of 500-900°C for 8hrs in order to investigate the microstructure and mechanical properties of weld joint. Specimens with the post weld heat treatment at 720°C for 8hrs show optimal mechanical properties. Residual stress of post weld heat treated specimens was measured to weld joint in the same temperature range. After friction welding tests on samples with a diameter of 80mm, tensile properties of post-weld-heat-treated and non-heat-treated samples were compared.
