IS 2062, Plasma Arc welding, Hardness


In th present work, an attempt has been made to study the effect of plasma arc welding on fusion characteristics of IS 2062 joints. Joints were fabricated using different levels of welding current (140 Amp –160 Amp). The formation of the amount of ferrite in the weld metal controls the microstructural evolution during high-temperature service and higher hardness in the fusion zone, which is due to martensitic formation in the weld zone.
