Investigation on effect of welding parameters on solidification cracking of austenitic stainless steel 314
Paper in proceedings, 2018

This study investigates the solidification cracking susceptibility of the austenitic stainless steel 314. Longitudinal Varestraint testing was used with three different set of welding test parameters. Weld speed, current and voltage values were selected so that the same heat input resulted in all the test conditions. From the crack measurements it was seen that the test condition with the lowest current and welding speed value also produced the least amount of cracking with very good repeatability.
