Mismatch in high strength steels welds : Highlights of the ECSC F1 & F5 workshop, Brussels, 7 December 1993
Over the last two decades, the steel industry has made great progress in developing new grades of structural steel with reduced alloying elements while improving strength, toughness and embrittlement sensitivity. Reliable welding techniques are a prime requirement for cost-effective prefabrication and maintaining static integrity, fatigue resistance and the prevention of brittle failure. At the same time, structural codes are specifying new design rules which tend to save weight by employing the possibilities of elasto-plastic design and the concepts of boundary states. This report presents the experience of specialists in the field of mismatch in high strength steel welds, and their suggestions for future work and development.
