Abstract : HY-80 castings exhibited satisfactory weldability properties as evidenced by mechanical tests and explosion bulge tests at 0 F. The only difference between cast and wrought components of the weld assemblies is a dendritic concentration of spheroids originally present in the cast HY-80 base metal becoming more pronounced in the HAZ but with no apparent deleterious effect. Suggested preheat and heat input rates are indicated. (Author)
