Abstract:

The principal objective was to determine the suitability of specially treated and processed ABS Grade EH36 steels for welding with high heat input welding processes. The project EH36 steel plate has demonstrated the suitability of versions of ABS Grade which are specially suited for marine applications where resistance to HAZ degradation is of concern. Use of these steels should provide for welding of EH36 steel with the high deposition rate welding processes such as electroslag. These new steels should also be advantageous in applications such as low temperature service for carriage of liquefied gases, wherein minimum HAZ Charpy V-notch values are specified.
