Abstract : A literature survey was made to review presently available information on the notch toughness of weld metals and the heat-affected zone as they are affected by welding procedures. The base discussed in this report include mild steel and low-alloy, high-strength steels with up to 120,000-psi yield strength, such as may be used for merchant-ship construction. Welding processes considered include (1) shielded metal-arc welding, (2) submerged-arc welding, (3) gas metalarc welding, and (4) electrostag and electrogas welding. (Author)
