A review on Evaluate the effect of process paramter on mechanical properties 6mm thickness SS317L weld joint for reciever application GTAW welding

Prashant Rameshkumar Pandya, G. D. Acharya


TIG welding is most important in the arc welding process. Especially of stainless steel and aluminum are more difficult to do. For better results, the optimal selection of process parameters is very important. In this work, the creator needs to decide the effect of different welding parameters like gas flow rate, current and included angle is selected. The experimental work organizes to optimize different parameter as per ASME section 9. The different test is done to check the quality of weld and strength. And optimization is also done with Minitab software.
