Investigation of the effect of nitrogen alloying and yttrium and zirconium oxide additives to the weld pool on the structure of
an austenitic weld and its microhardness in the zone of its fusion with pearlitic base metal was studied for the case of joints of
dissimilar steels (austenitic with pearlitic), made by coated-electrode arc welding. It is shown that nitrogen alloying of weld
metal of Kh20N9G6 type through the electrode coating practically does not affect the dendrite dimensions, but lower the
microhardness (risk of martensite formation) in the zone of fusion with pearlitic base metal. In the case of yttrium or zirconium
oxide additives to the austenitic metal of Kh15N25M6AG2 type through the coating, its dendrite structure is refined significantly,
and metal microhardness in the fusion zone drops to the level that is indicative of martensite absence. 8 Ref., 2 Table, 4 Fig.
