    Abstract: Welding is a method of joining similar and dissimilar metals through the use of coalescence. GMAW is a semi-mechanized, fully-mechanized, or automatic process that is widely used in fabrication. GMAW is expected to evolve further to allow for better arc control, bead contour control, deposition control, and higher productivity. The goal of this stu... Show More

    Abstract: In industrial settings, it is customary to employ at least a three-passes welding for 9.525 mm-thick welded samples, which results in increased angular distortion and longitudinal/transversal deformation. This study outlines the optimized welding parameters for a butt-welded joint V groove with a 60-degree bevel angle and a 2.5 mm root face, utiliz... Show More
