Influence of Welding on Dynamic Fracture Toughness of Strenx 700MC Steel
AbstractThermomechanically processed high-strength steels feature specific fracture behavior. One of the decisive criteria for their application is their stability against internal defects during impact loads, especially in connection with the welding. The work is focused on experimental analyses of the influence of welding on static and dynamic fracture toughness of Strenx 700MC steel. The fracture toughness was determined using the circumferentially notched round bar specimens during static loads and two dynamic load levels. To achieve a homogeneous zone for the requirements of fracture toughness tests, simulation of the welding influence was performed. Fractographic and metallographic analyses described a specific fracture behavior controlled by the internal structural heterogeneity. A limiting degradation process due to welding was identified by the microstructural analysis. View Full-Text
