When analyzing the factors that determine the mechanical properties of welds, it is necessary to take into account both the size of individual components of the structure and their morphology. It is shown that the use of the method of fractal analysis makes it possible to numerically determine such parameters of weld metal microstructure, as the size of non-metallic inclusions, and branching of grain boundaries, which was impossible at analysis of metallographic images. The results are obtained, which indicate the need to include in the multifractal analysis the characteristics that describe the morphological features of microstructural components, the distribution of non-metallic inclusions by size, and the level of doping of the solid solution. Research directions for the development of multifractal analysis of welded joints have been identified. 10 Ref., 2 Tabl., 6 Fig.
