effect of heat input on the microstructure and mechanical properties of
dissimilar welds of direct-quenched ultrahigh strength steel (Optim 960
QC) and duplex stainless steel (UNS S32205) was studied. The effect of
heat input on grain coarsening and the proportion of bainite-martensite
on the ferritic side and ferrite-austenite on the duplex side was
clearly evident. The hardness profile showed a trend of increasing
hardness with lower heat input. Enhancement in tensile strength
corresponded to lower heat input and increase in hardness. The
elongation values and bend behavior were roughly the same for all the
specimens; there was no clear link to the heat input. Moderate heat
input gave optimum impact toughness in the weld and the ferritic HAZ.
The fatigue performance of the specimens demonstrated the profound
influence of geometrical effects. However, the effect of microstructural
characteristics on fracture location was also observed.
