RE: Dissimilar welding

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I don't recall the references used other than AWS, but I do recall welding
stainless steel to A36 steel on a project over 10 years ago - so, yes it can
be done.  We did encounter a problem, but not with the welding.  Stainless
and carbon steel have different thermal coefficients of expansion which
caused some warping in our circumstance.

Subject: Dissimilar welding

I have an application where misc. stainless items would be welded to A36
structural members. 
Is this feasible?
While on the subject, who can recommend some references for welding
dissimilar metals?
