The Application of ISDG Method on the Mechanical Property Measurement of the Welding-Line Material
The mechanical properties of various parts of the welding-line material are different, while they play very important role in the welding structures, such as the differences of the melted part and the temperature-affected part. In this paper, a non-contacting laser based technique, ISDG (Interference Strain Displacement Gauge) method, is applied to find out these property differences on very small specimen. The testing is very successful and the whole stress-strain curves in such small scale are obtained on different parts of the welding-line material. The soften phenomena of the temperature-affected part is observed by the comparison of the Young’s modulus and yield stress between the melted part and the temperature-affected part.
