Penetration Weld Constant
Power Source Constant
over the entire fusion faces and between all adjoining weld beads.
joint root condition in a groove weld in which weld metal extends through the
groove weld in which weld metal extends through the joint thickness.
arc welding power source with a volt ampere relationship yielding a small welding
current change from a large arc voltage change.
arc welding power source with a volt-ampere relationship yielding a large welding
current change from a small arc voltage change.
A plasma arc column that is shaped by the constricting orifice in the nozzle
of the plasma arc torch or plasma spraying gun.
device that transfers current to a continuous electrode.
distance from the contact tube to the end of the gas nozzle.
fillet weld having a convex face.
maximum distance from the face of a convex fillet weld perpendicular to a line
joining the weld toes.
composite filler metal electrode consisting of a core of a bare electrode or
metal cored electrode to which a covering sufficient to provide a slag layer
on the weld metal has been applied. The covering may contain materials providing
such functions as shielding from the atmosphere, deoxidation, and arc stabilization,
and can serve as a source of metallic additions to the weld.
fracture type discontinuity characterized by a sharp tip and high ratio of length
and width to opening displacement.
depression in the weld face at the termination of a weld bead.
