Abstract:

Bend test specimens, prepared from bead-on-plate welds, were tested as simple beams on a 4-12 in. span with the weld beads in tension. The investigation included a study of variables affecting hydrogen embrittlement, of the effect of these variables in different regions of the weld, of possible methods of relieving the detrimental effects, and of a possible relationship between hydrogen embrittlement and restraint during welding.
