Fusion welding generally requires the use of electrodes. It is, therefore, important to select or design welding electrodes that promote low crack sensitivity and few brittle components. The objective of this study is to analyze the influence of different alloyed elements on microstructure formation at different areas of the weld. The methodology involves a review of the outcomes of scientific papers and experiments conducted in our laboratory. The expected results are benchmark criteria for the design of electrodes for welding dissimilar grades of steel with a higher Mn content and also for the selection of existing electrodes.
