The change in relayed fracture resistance, depending on preheating temperature and thermal effect during deposition of new beads was experimentally studied, using the Implant method, in the case of 0.25C–2CrNiMoV rotor steel joints, produced by submerged-arc welding. The nature of the change in hardness in the cross-section of quenching steel with a deposited bead was investigated, which illustrates formation of quenching and tempering areas under the influence of reheating in welding. Using critical stresses as a quantitative index, causing delayed fracture, it was shown that after reheating in welding, the cracking resistance can increase by about 1.5–2.5 times or more. Under the conditions of welding without preheating, one-time and two-time cycles of heating in welding increase the cracking resistance up to the level obtained during welding with preheating up to 150–200 °C. 9 Ref., 4 Figures.
