Application of LBW and LAHW for fillet welds of 12 and 15 mm structural steel
Dry hyperbaric welding of HSLA steel up to 35 bar ambient pressure with CMT arc mode
Hyperbaric welding plays a significant role in subsea pipeline installations and repairs for transport of oil and gas from the offshore field to the market. The effect of ambient pressure, from 1 to 35 bar, on penetration depth and microstructure evolution in dry hyperbaric welding of X70 pipeline s...
Metallurgical Aspects in the Welding of Clad Pipelines—A Global Outlook
In the present work, the metallurgical changes in the welding of clad pipelines are studied. Clad pipes consist of a complex multi-material system, with (i) the clad being stainless steel or a nickel-based superalloy, (ii) the pipe being API X60 or X65 high-strength carbon steel, and (iii) the weldi...
Correction to: Application of laser-arc hybrid welding of steel for low-temperature service
Application of laser-arc hybrid welding of steel for low-temperature service
Laser-arc hybrid welding (LAHW) is more often used in shipbuilding and oil and gas industries in recent years. Its popularity arises due to many advantages compared to conventional arc welding processes. The laser beam source is used to achieve much higher penetration depths. By adding filler wire t...
Hybrid Welding of 45 mm High Strength Steel Sections
Fiber laser-MIG hybrid welding of 5 mm 5083 aluminum alloy
Aluminum and its alloys are difficult to weld due to their specific characteristics. New joining methods such as high power fiber laser-MIG can provide higher overall productivity compared to the arc welding or laser beam welding. There is huge lack of information on how the specific welding paramet...
Hybrid welding possibilities of thick sections for arctic applications
The arctic shelf contains about 20% of all undiscovered hydrocarbons on our planet, therefore oil and gas industry requires advanced steels to be used which withstand appropriate fracture toughness up to -60 °C and suitable welding technologies. High brightness laser with combination with arc s...
