Abstract:

In the U.S.S.R., thick titanium plate is being welded by processes that normally are not considered for welding titanium in the U. S. These are submerged-arc and electroslag welding. Submerged-arc welding is used for joining titanium with thicknesses in the range of 0.08 to about 2 inches. For thicknesses over 2 inches, electroslag welding is used. Inert-gas welding also is used but its use is restricted to titanium less than 0.08 inch thick. For this reason, inert-gas welding of titanium is not covered in this review. Similarly, nearly all of the published information on submerged-arc welding of titanium has also been concerned with thin material, i.e., 0.08 to 0.2 inch. Consequently, this information has been reviewed only in those cases where the reported work also could be applied to thicker material. Author
