Selection of input variables and structure of neural network to evaluate the quality of resistance spot welding.
|Analysis of input parameters of neural networks to control the quality of spot welding was conducted. The principal requirements to neural networks have been defined. It is shown that the proposed neural network ensures the required accuracy of predicting the weld spot nugget diameter and can be built into the microcontroller to control the spot welding process.|

Effect of an electrode metal droplet on arc voltage in gas-shielded welding.
|Voltage drop at an electrode metal droplet and its effect on the arc voltage value have been determined. Geometrical parameters of the droplet and length of the arc have been estimated using a machine consisting of laser and high-speed digital video camera, by synchronously registering the arc voltage and welding current curves. It has been established that the voltage drop per unit length of the droplet may exceed the voltage drop gradient in the arc column, and the arc voltage may increase with growth of the droplet and reduction of the arc voltage.|

Peculiarities of carbon oxidation in welding with ilmenite-covered electrodes.
|It was established that the process of decarburization of Fe-C alloy, for example, in the form of cast iron, in electrode coatings occurs mainly in the slag phase under the lower part of a growing droplet. Oxygen dissolved in metal and coming from the slag serves as oxidizer of carbon in the melt. It was found that losses of carbon for oxidation in the Fe-C alloy are 1.5 times higher than those of graphite, and the rate of decarburization at the droplet stage is twice as high.|
Effect of deformation on electrochemical heterogeneity of pipeline welded joints.
|Electrode potentials have been measured in various zones of a circumferential welded joint on low-carbon steel pipes at different levels of loading using internal pressure. It is shown that plastic deformation eliminates completely the difference of potentials between the parent metal and HAZ of the welded joint.|
Allowance for effect of cycle asymmetry on fatigue resistance of welded joints.
|The paper deals with an engineering method of calculating estimation of the influence of cycle asymmetry on fatigue resistance of steel welded joints at different values of base in the high-cycle region of fatigue life. An informative diagram of limiting ranges of stresses based on asymmetry parameters and number of cycles, as well as analytical expressions for its description are suggested.|

Method of calculation of voltage drop in electrode stickout length with allowance for non-linearity of thermophysical parameters.
|The offered method is valid for the electrode stickout area, i.e. from the nozzle inlet to stickout adjacent to the droplet. Expressions for determination of current values of voltage drop in the electrode stickout length as functions of temperature and relations between the current length of electrode stickout and temperature at the end of the given area of stickout are presented.|

Properties of magnetron coatings on the Fe-Cr-Ni base with amorphous structure.
|Structure and properties of coatings produced by magnetron sputtering of targets of stainless steel of the 18-10 type with molybdenum additions have been investigated. As shown by X-ray diffraction analysis, the Fe-Ni-Cr-Mo coatings are characterised by an amorphous structure, stable in the 293-823 K range. The coatings are proved to have high values of microhardness (8.5-9.0 GPa) and corrosion resistance in aqueous salt solutions.|

Wear resistance of deposited metal of Fe-C-Cr-Ti-Mo alloying system.
|Resistance of deposited metal of type of high-carbon Cr-Ti-Mo steel under the conditions of abrasive wear was studied. High wear resistance of deposited metal of this type is explained by the ability of austenitic-martensitic matrix of alloy to prevent the бhipping of titanium carbides at the expense of formation of coherent bonds at the austenite-carbide interface. Optimum composition of deposited metal was selected and self-shielding flux-cored wire was developed on the basis of results of investigations.|
