Abstract

A mechanism of crack growth was investigated in resistance spot welds of mildsteel. The experiments in this study were designed to investigate the effects of theelectrode cap geometrieson fatigue life of the resistance spot weld specimens. Twotypes of electrode cap geometries were used. These types are 4.8 mm and 6.3 mmnose,used with the same shank in welding operations of 2mm mild steel plate. Toobtain the goal, operating factors were precisely controlled, especially the electrodeforce and welding current of spot welds, to keep the same operating conditions whilechangingthe electrode geometries. The life test results showed an improvement in thefatigue life of resistance spot welds. The increment was 30% in heavy loads and 10%in low loads based on tool geometry. The improvement in the fatigue life wasproduced by reducing the diameter of the nose in the geometry of the tool.

Abstract

This research is interest in increasing the strength of spot welding joint for thincommercial Aluminum by adding casting component to the welding zone in the form ofpowder. Those components are copper, manganese and magnesium which are added in adifferent percentages it appear that the strength of the spot welding has been improvedby (14.5%) when adding(0.4 grams of magnesium),(0.1 grams of manganese ) and (0.4gram of copper).The powder is added in the welding zone boundary after made a single hole with adepth of (0.375mm) and a diameter of (1mm) in the center of spot welding point.To increase the welding strength, five holes have been made with the same abovedimensions through the welding zone boundary. The percentages of additive used afterreparation the reduction of Aluminum powder.The value of shearing strength increase with a percentage of (27.3%) as comparingwith those without additive.Also, heat treatment has been done, which gave a redaction in the strength of spotwelding. It has been observed that the increase in the temperature of heat treatmentresult in decreasing in the spot strength. Welding and cooling environment have aneffect on the strength of welded specimen. Hence, air welding environment gives a goodwelding strength.
