Abstract:In this study, an easy and innovative technique for laser welded butt joint characterization is proposed. AISI 304 sheets, 1.25 mm in thickness, were welded in the butt configuration by means of a high power diode laser (HPDL). Different combinations of the process parameters were considered. For each combination, during the process different thermal cycles were induced in the material generating heat affected zones, which were subsequently tested by the double indentation test method. This test was performed …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
