The extensometer has a measuring length of 25 mm and is placed in the constant cross section of the specimen, so that, for specimens in the as-welded (AW) state, the entire butt weld is within the measuring length of the extensometer.
"This helps reduce the as-welded tolerances that may drive the requirement for additional manufacturing operations in the production line, ultimately reducing cost."
Mechanical properties and microstructure characters of the dissimilar welding joints were investigated in state as-welded and PWHT condition and compared result between them.
