Abstract

The authors describe tests on the carbon are welding of corrosion‐resisting magnesium alloy. Recommended pract ice covers the use of fluxes, welding procedures and welding conditions, and preparation and positioning of components. Mechanical and metallographic tests and general inspection lead to the conclusion that all types of joints can be carried out, giving good appearance and sound welds, but somewhat lower mechanical properties. Subsequent heat treatment improves uniformity, but not mechanical strength.
