Evaluation of Hydrogen Cracking in Weld Metal Deposited using Cellulosic Electrodes

The objectives of the proposed project can be summarized as follows to: (1) determine the effect of electrode drying and arc length on weld metal chemistry, mechanical properties and hydrogen cracking susceptibility; (2) determine the effect of electrode re-hydration on weld metal chemistry, mechanical properties and hydrogen cracking susceptibility; and (3) develop practical guidelines on how to prevent hydrogen cracking in welds deposited using cellulosic covered electrodes.
