From its have been cutting test pieces with dimensions 50 x 5 x 12 mm notated: 1--test pieces from heat affected zone (zit 1 respectively 2), 2--test piece made with shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), 3--test piece made by gas tungsten arc welding process in argon inert protective atmosphere (GTAW).
For the gas tungsten arc welding in protective inert argon atmosphere, the volume of diffused gasses is smaller and this could be caused by low quantities of hydrogen from inert gasses compared with the hydrogen from shielded electrode used in surrounding atmosphere.
Gas tungsten arc welding uses a constant power source, meaning that the current (and thus the heat) remains relatively constant, even if the arc distance and voltage change.
