Oxide Inclusions in Steel Welds of Car Body
The goal of this research is to choose the proper method of car body welding. Properties of weld metal deposits depend on many conditions. First of all, this paper attempts to study the role of oxide inclusion sites on the transformation of austenite to acicular ferrite in steel weld metal deposits and their toughness. Safety and exploitation conditions of welded steel structure depend on many factors. The most significant of those factors are connected with materials, welding technology, state of stress and temperature. Because of that a good selection of steel and welding method is crucial to obtain proper steel structure. Car body elements of higher durability are made of low carbon and low alloy steel, very often with small amount of carbon and the amount of alloy elements such as Ni, Mn, Mo, Cr and V in low alloy steel and their welds. In the terms of the kind of steel it is used a proper welding method and adequate filler materials. In the present paper the influence of Mn, Ni, Mo, in WMD on the behaviour of steel structure for low temperature service was tested.
