Prediction of HAZ Width of Submerged Arc Welded Plates
This paper is focused on deriving an analytical solution to predict the transient temperature distribution on the plate during the process of Submerged Arc Welding (SAW). An analytical solution is derived from the transient three-dimensional heat conduction equation. The energy input that is applied on the plate is taken as the volume of heat lost from the electric arc. The electric arc is assumed to be a moving double-ellipsoidal heat source with a close proximity to a Gaussian distribution. It is observed that the predicted values are in good agreement with the experimental results. HAZ width calculation is also done with the help of the analytical solution of the transient-three dimensional heat conduction equation. Very good agreement between predicted and experimental values has been archived.
