The work studies the influence of modification of different compounds by dispersed particles on the structure, non-metallic inclusions, their size and distribution, change of phase transformation temperatures and mechanical properties of weld metal joints of high-strength low-alloy steels. It is shown that the use of the temperature of the maximum intensity of phase transformation allowed separating the influence of oxide, carbide and titanium-containing compounds on the structure and mechanical properties of the weld metal of high-strength low-alloy steels. The use of powders of TiO2, ZrO2 and MgO oxides promotes the formation of a dispersed structure of acicular ferrite (from 30 to 90%), which allows obtaining a favorable combination of high strength and toughness, especially at extremely low test temperatures (-40...– 60 °С) in the weld metal. 11 Ref., 5 Tabl., 9 Fig.
Keywords: high-strength low-alloy steels, austenite decay diagram, phase transformations, critical transformation temperatures, automatic welding, weld metal, modification, microstructure, mechanical properties
