Influence of Amplitude on the Tensile Strength of Welded Joints Fabricated under Vibratory Weld Conditioning
J. Kalpana, P. S. Rao, P. G. Rao
ABSTRACT: This paper presents the amplitude effect on tensile strength of welded joints produced with vibratory dissimilar TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding process. In this study, new vibratory setup has been developed with two metal engravers for inducing mechanical vibrations to the specimens to be welded. Metal engravers are capable to produce different amplitudes of specimens by adjusting the knob provided on the metal engravers. Finally, analysis has been carried out on the effect of vibration amplitude on tensile strength of welded joints.
