Abstract : Chapter II presents a brief discussion of the arc welding process. Chapter III considers the variables affecting the weldability of plain-carbon, low-alloy, and high-alloy steels. Chapter IV is concerned with the importance of the transition temperature of a material and with the ensuing complications of welding. Included is a discussion of the correlation of many of the test methods used to determine transition temperature. Chapter V contains a discussion of the effects of hydrogen and other gases and of the methods for their control. The methods of analysis and the determination of the quantities of gases present in a weld are briefly surveyed. Chapter VI discusses the importance, magnitude, and relief of residual stress in weldments. Included is a discussion of the interaction of residual stress and hydrogen, which is one of the principal objectives in a current experimental program now being conducted at the University of Illinois. Appendix A presents a summary and discussion of the replies to the questionnaire distributed by the Corps of Engineers. Appendix B contains the bibliography.
