To Study the Effect of Welding Parameters on Tensile Strength in Electric arc Welding
Pages : 310-312
The aim of the work reported here was to utilize Taguchi methods to optimize Tensile Strength in the welding of SS-316. The parameters of Tensile Strength are analyzed under varying welding currents (200A, 250A, 300A.), Weld Time (10Sec., 20sec, 30sec.) The settings of welding parameters were determined by using Taguchi Experimental Design method. The signal to noise ratio is employed to determine the effect of welding parameters on Tensile Strength. The conclusion from the study is that Time is the most significant factor than current for Tensile Strength response; Tensile Strength displaying an increasing trend with an increase in time & Current parameters, for maximum Tensile Strength current is to set at max. level.
