TECHNICAL AND TRADE INFORMATION EXPLANATION OF TERMS RELATING TO . . . 214 Email: cigweldsales@cigweld.com.au MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF WELD METAL The mechanical properties of a metal describe its suitability for any given application and provide a performance forecast. Mechanical properties are of the utmost concern in welding consumable qualification since weld deposits must often provide service characteristics equal to or better than those of the base metal. The properties considered most often (and those that are frequently cited in Welding Consumable Specification requirements) are Strength, Hardness, Ductility and Impact Resistance. 1. Strength: A metal’s “strength” is its capacity to withstand external forces without breaking. In a tension test, under stretch loading, a specimen reveals several features - including elastic limit, elongation, yield point, yield strength, tensile strength and reduction in area. During the test, load is increased gradually and the specimen stretches in direct proportion to the load until it reaches its Yield Poin t. At any point up to the yield point, if the load is relaxed, the specimen will return to its original dimensions.
