Under the Guidance of: Mr Som Ashutosh
Project carried out at: AKGEC-FRONIUS Advance Welding Technology & Research Centre, Ghaziabad
Pulsed GMAW process parameterization will be carried out while welding of thin austenitic stainless steel sheets (304 grade) of varying thickness. Weld test coupons will be prepared by varying various weld parameters such as pulse current, base current, pulse frequency and amplitude, voltage, shielding gas flow rate, electrode stick out, wire diameter etc. The test coupons will then be analysed for their mechanical and microstructural properties. The effect of various parameters on weld bead properties will be studied and co-related to optimize the same with reference to the thickness of the work piece.
