Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The major purpose of this study was to provide information about desirable combinations of welding electrode and appropriate fluxes for submerged arc welding of low carbon steel. Other purposes were to:
1. Test a variety of combinations of available submerged arc welding electrodes and fluxes in welding low carbon steel.
a. Prepare specimens for tensile tests.
b. Conduct tensile tests.
c. Calculate tensile strength, yield point, break point, percent of elongation, and percent reduction of area.
2. Determine the most desirable combinations of electrode and flux for companies presently using or planning to use submerged arc welding for low carbon steel applications, in an effort to save time and expense.
3. Provide a comparison of electrode/flux combinations recommended by manufacturers.
