The Great Minds of Carbon Equivalent – Part III

By Wesley Wang on Friday, June 17th, 2016 in Corporate Blog, Materials Engineering, Modeling Simulation, Structural Integrity. No Comments

In welding, carbon equivalent (CE) calculations are used to predict heat affected zone (HAZ) hardenability in steels. These CE equations can be used to establish criteria to predict cold-cracking,

as can calculations to predict maximum hardness. Dearden and O’Neill believed that the following critical hardness guidelines could be used to judge the cold-cracking tendency of steels …
