Abstract: In this study, influence of the welding process parameters on the weldability of material, low carbon alloy steel (0.14% C) specification having the dimensions 75 mm X 50 mm X 6mm welded by metal arc welding were investigated. The welding current, arc voltage, welding speed, heat input rate are chosen as welding parameters. The depth of penetrations were measured for each specimen after the welding operation on closed butt joint and the effects of welding speed and heat input rate parameters on depth of penetration were investigated.
Keywords: Low Carbon Steel, Manual Metal Arc Welding, Welding Bead Penetration, Welding Process Parameters, Welding Speed.
