TMF Influence on Weld Structure at the Welding of 12X18H9T
The transverse magnetic field (TMF) use allows to obtain follow effects: increasing the electrode melting coefficient, reducing the base metal penetration depth and grinding the weld metal structural components. The paper analyzed the existing literature data about the TMF influence on the refinement of the weld metal structure. It is experimentally shown that the alternating TMF influence of 6 Hz frequency reduces the grain size of weld metal is almost twice in comparison with the welding process without the TMF influence at submerged arc welding of plates of austenitic steel type 12X18H9T (X10CrNiTi18-9). The average grains size is 7-6 index, when welding without the TMF influence and the average grains size of the weld metal corresponds to 8 index, with separate inclusions of grains with 7 index when welding with the TMF influence. This is should increase the yield strength value of the weld metal in accordance with the data of Hall – Petch.
