A. Welding Welding means permanently joining two pieces of material by heating the joint between them. The heat melts the edges of the components being welded together, and once the material has become molten (liquid), fusion occurs. When the joint fuses, material from each component is mixed together, joining to form a solid weld. Metal is often welded. It is also possible to weld plastic. Dr. Hatem Elaydi, IUG, Spring 2017, Chapter 28 3

Welding is usually used to join components of the same base metal- that is, the metal the components are made of. It is possible - though more difficult - to weld certain dissimilar materials. For example, copper can be welded to steel. Often, a filler is added during welding. This is new material, of the same type as the base metal, which is melted into the weld pool the molten metal at the joint during welding. Dr. Hatem Elaydi, IUG, Spring 2017, Chapter 28 4 One problem in welding is discontinuity, where joints are not completely solid. Another problem is

residual stress. This is force- for example, tensionwhich is 'trapped' around the joint. This problem occurs after welding, as a result of contraction in the weld zone (or fusion zone) -the area that was the weld pool. It can also occur in the heat-affected zone (HAZ) -the material close to the weld pool which was subjected to high temperature, and was modified by the heat. Dr. Hatem Elaydi, IUG, Spring 2017, Chapter 28 5 B. Common gas and arc welding techniques Shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), generally called arc

welding or stick welding, involves striking an electric arc between the workpiece and an electrode an electrical conductor. The heat from the arc melts the base metal. The electrode consists of a welding rod a stick of metal of the same type as the workpiece which provides filler. The welding rod is therefore consumable -it is used up. The rod is also coated with a material called flux. When heated, this produces a shielding gas, which protects the molten metal from oxygen. Without this gas, the hot metal would combine with the oxygen in the air, and this Dr. Hatem Elaydi, IUG, Spring 2017, Chapter 28 6 would weaken the weld. Dr. Hatem Elaydi, IUG, Spring 2017, Chapter 28

7 In gas welding, heat comes from a torch which burns oxyfuel - a mixture of oxygen (02) and a gas fuel. The gas fuel burns much hotter in oxygen than it would in the air. The most common fuel is acetylene (C2H2) called oxyacetylene when mixed with oxygen. Welding rods provide filler but flux is not required, as the burning oxyfuel produces carbon dioxide (C02) which acts as a shielding gas. Dr. Hatem Elaydi, IUG, Spring 2017, Chapter 28

8 In gas metal arc welding (GMAW)- often called MIG welding (Metal Inert Gas) - an arc is struck between the workpiece and a wire which is made of the same metal as the base metal. The wire acts as a consumable electrode, supplying filler. A shielding gas, often argon (Ar), is blown onto the weld pool. Dr. Hatem Elaydi, IUG, Spring 2017, Chapter 28 9

In gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW)- often called TIG welding (Tungsten Inert Gas) an arc comes from an electrode made of tungsten (W). However, the tungsten is non-consumableit does not melt, and is not consumed as filler during the welding process. A separate welding rod is used to supply filler, if required. As with MIG welding, a shielding gas such as argon is blown onto the weld. Note: MIG and TIG are said as words: /rrug/ and /tlg/. Dr. Hatem Elaydi, IUG, Spring 2017, Chapter 28 10 Exercises
