In Situ Observation of Solidification Behavior during Welding


Article Preview

Time-resolved X-Ray Diffraction (TRXRD) experments were carried out to identify the phase transformation during welding in-situ. For the martensitic steel weld with different chemical compositions, the solidification behavior was directly analyzed in the time-resolution of 0.01 seconds. The halo pattern from the weld pool gives basis to observe the phase transformation during solidification process of weld. Furthermore, the latest development of TRXRD system was outlined. The importance of detector area was discussed and brand-new TRXRD system in real and reciprocal lattice space was presented.
