Title : Comparative Study Between Arc and Laser Welding of Two Low Carbon Steel Sheets


Welding is an assembly process widely used in the industrial field. The welding of steels is one of the concerns of the industrialists, because one can meet the welding of steels in the field of the construction of the pipelines and the nuclear power stations, the manufacture of the cars and other fields. However, the techniques for welding steels are very varied. There are many welding processes such as arc welding, laser welding and friction welding. It should be noted that the quality of welding mainly depends on the welding process used. In this context, the aim of this study is to present the welding effect on a low carbon steel. To achieve our goals, arc welding and laser welding were applied to join two low carbon steel sheets together. The characterization techniques used were optical microscopy, scanning electric microscopy, Vickers microhardness and tensile tests. All his techniques have allowed us to highlight the difference, microstructural and mechanical, of the joint welded by the two welding processes
