Structure and properties of metal of HAZ high-temperature area and weld were investigated in 15Kh1M1FL steel welding at higher modes using transverse hill method without preheating. Comparison of the received results with research data of welding process at moderate modes (160–170 A) determined that rise of current to 200–210 A results in increase of susceptibility to brittle fracture of HAZ high-temperature area and weld metal. The reason for this is high hardness caused by presence of martensite constituent in a bainite structure. 3 Ref., 1 Table, 5 Figures.
