Title: RELIABLE WELDING OF HSLA STEELS BY SQUARE WAVE PULSING USING AN ADVANCED SENSING (EDAP) TECHNIQUE
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $370,000.00
 

Abstract:

PULSE WELDING TECHNIQUES FOR HSLA STEELS HAVE THE ADVANTAGES OF IMPROVING MICROSTRUCTURE, REDUCING DISTORTION AND INCREASING MECHANICAL PROPERTIES. THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE IS TO IMPROVE RELIABILITY AND PREDICTABILITY OF WELDING HSLA STEELS. A NEW ADVANCED SENSING SYSTEM "EDAP" WILL PROVIDE REAL TIME PUDDLE SIZE AND QUALITY INFORMATION. THIS WILL IMPROVE THE CAPABILITIES OF AUTOMATED WELDING SYSTEMS. THE USE OF HIGH RESOLUTION, HIGH SPEED VIDEO WILL BE SHOWN AS A VIABLE AND ECONOMIC RESEARCH TOOL AND A METHOD OF MAINTAINING VISUAL RECORDS FOR ANALYTICAL STUDY. FOUR AREAS OF REASEARCH WILL BE DERIVED FROM ONE STUDY, PULSE WELDING OF HSLA STEELS, DATA BASE DEVELOPMENT FOR A710 STEELS, EVALUATING THE EDAP CONTROL SYSTEM, AND DEMONSTRATING THE VALUE OF HIGH SPEED VIDEO FOR CONDUCTING RESEARCH.
