Hot Cracks vs Stress Cracks in Aluminum Welding

On breaking open the weld, the crack surface in steel and nickel alloys may have a blue oxidised appearance, showing that they were formed while the weld metal was still hot Metallography The cracks form at the solidification boundaries and are characteristically interdendritic.

Investigation of the occurrence of hot cracking in pulsed

The compressive stress immediately behind the weld pool prevents the formation of hot cracks at the trailing edge of the weld nugget The transverse tensile stress, on the other hand, in contribution of grain boundary liquation increases the susceptibility of hot cracking at some distance behind the weld pool Download high-res image (473KB).

Fundamentals of Defects Afflicting Carbon Steel

Shrinkage (or Hot Cracking) This is the formation of cracks during the solidification of metal The process is also known as hot shortness, hot fissuring, solidification cracking, and liquation cracking Hot cracking usually occurs when the available supply of liquid weld metal is insufficient to fill the space available to solidifying metal.

Hot Cracking

Gene Mathers, in The Welding of Aluminium and its Alloys, 2002 234 Hot cracking Hot cracking is a welding problem that does not occur in pure metals but may be found in certain alloy systems It is not confined to the aluminium alloys but is also encountered in steels, nickel and copper alloys.

Welding Carbon Steel

May 09, 2017· Examples of low carbon steel suitable for welding include C1008, C1018, A36, A1011 and A500 Medium carbon steel such as C1045 typically requires preheat and post-heat treatment to avoid weld cracking High carbon steel is even more prone to weld cracking than the other two groups of carbon steel.

Weld Cracking

For the purposes of this section, “cracking” will be dis-tinguished from weld failure Welds may fail due to over-load, underdesign, or fatigue The cracking dis-cussed here is the result of solidification, cooling, and the stresses that develop due to weld shrinkage Weld crack-ing occurs close to the time of fabrication Hot cracks.

Welding defect

Hot weld cracking occurs at high temperatures—generally over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit (538 degrees Celsius)—and the defect appears more or less immediately (though not always visibly) upon solidification of the weld Hot cracking is almost always appears in the longitudinal direction of the weld bead itself, or directly adjacent to it.

Hot Cracking vs Cold Cracking

Cold Cracking Cold cracking is much worse than hot cracking simply because it may be hours or days before the crack appears This means the welded assembly may already be out the door and in service Cold cracking is characterized by a crack starting on the base material and not on the weld as is the case with hot cracking.
