Weld Fume Safety Practices for Working in Enclosed Spaces1:00 pm

Presenter: Duncan Beaumont

ROOM 202

Show Description

ROOM 202

Session Summary: When welders are working in tight or enclosed spaces, such as inside silos or fuel tanks, controlling weld fumes and keeping them out of the welder’s breathing zone is challenging. The dangers of weld smoke, the special challenges of controlling fumes in enclosed areas, engineering control options and personal protective equipment (PPE) are detailed. This presentation is targeted towards welders, fabrication shop owners, plant managers, health and safety professionals, and others concerned with weld fume safety.   

 

Active Exploration of Weld Distortion Scenarios on Digital Twin.1:30 pm

Presenter: Mahyar Asadi

ROOM 201

Show Description

ROOM 201

Session Summary: The familiar CSA W59 (or equivalent AWS D1.1) reference standard for welded structures commits contractors for submitting an effective distortion control plan where welds shall be made in sequence such as to minimize distortion and welding heat shall be balanced. These are all requirements, but standard presents no solutions on how to achieve them. Typically, plans to control weld distortion are therefore mostly intuitive with welding engineers relying on their experience combined with the results of a limited number of practical tests.

Evaluation and Modelling of Partial Joint Penetration Groove Welds in Aluminum Plate Connections1:30 pm

ROOM 202

Show Description

ROOM 202

Session Summary: This presentation will describe an experimental program on PJP welds, and will describe a developed strength model and its use in the context of the Canadian design codes (e.g. CSA W59.2). The experimental program will involve static strength and fatigue tests on connections containing PJP welds to investigate the validity of the current strength penalties imposed on these welds, and to begin to establish better models for use in design. In order to do this, 58 laboratory tests on aluminium plate connections are planned.   

Phased Array - The Future of Welding and Maintenance Inspection2:00 pm

Presenter: Andrew Crawford

ROOM 201

Show Description

ROOM 201

Session Summary: Phased Array Ultrasound Testing (PAUT), how it works and where it is being used is becoming history.    PAUT is a tool that provides an auditable trail, profile imagery and a far higher level of confidence on the type and extent of defects found.  The technology is increasingly relying on software enhancements and attributes since the hardware is becoming more uniform between manufacturers.  Recent advancements in the technology include Full Matrix Capture (FMC) and Total Focus Method (TFM) with current developments in Plane Wave Technology becoming more successful.   

A study on effects of microstructures in API X80 girth weld metals on hydrogen embrittlement 2:00 pm

Presenter: Yuji Kisaka

ROOM 202

Show Description

ROOM 202

Session Summary: Pipelines are the most economical way to transport nature gas and oil, so they have been long preferred over alternatives. In this area, hydrogen embrittlement of welds can often be a concerned, especially in the case of pipelines for severe sour environments where hydrogen attack may cause premature failure. In this work, the factors that control hydrogen embrittlement in steel welds will be reviewed in order to improve selection of welding consumables and procedures. A case study of the hydrogen susceptibility for two welds with differing microstructures (with different intragranular ferrite (IGF) volume faction) was investigated, in terms of tensile behavior, and hardness after hydrogen charging.     

Advances in Engineering Methods for Non-Destructive Measurement and Beneficial Redistribution of Residual Stresses3:00 pm

ROOM 202

Show Description

ROOM 202

Session Summary: Engineering properties of structures and materials, such as fatigue life, distortions, dimensional stability and corrosion resistance can be considerably affected by presence of residual stresses (RS) [1]. The knowledge of RS and ability to control their distribution is critical in welded structures when evaluating their fatigue life and preventing catastrophic failures. To address the major aspects of residual stresses and their behavior in structural elements, an engineering concept of residual stress management (RSM) has been developed [2] that takes into account all major stages of stress interaction with materials and structures, i.e. RS determination, RS analysis and RS redistribution. Using this approach, stresses in structures can be evaluated in each specific case either theoretically or experimentally and their performance optimized.  

Engineering and Shop Practices to Optimize CVN Properties in Welds3:00 pm

Presenter: Ken Mui

ROOM 201

Show Description

ROOM 201

Session Summary: Optimize Charpy V-Notch (CVN) results in production welding will be discussed focusing both on the engineering stage, and shop floor practices. At the Engineering Level, there are caveats of consumable selection by the electrode classification, certificate of conformance or letter of approval. Specific topics such as CVN transition curves, 2 run and limited pass welds, Thermo Mechanical Control Process (TMCP) steel and fundamentals of heat input will also covered.

Shop Level practices will be discuss on using techniques to ensure the optimal CVN values in the weld metal and heat affected zone. Despite careful selection of welding consumables and welding procedures, often technique at the welder level can cause poor CVN results of the weld.

Welding Robots Equipped With Special 3D Laser Vision Systems Help Deal With Welder Shortage 3:30 pm

Investigating the Mechanical Properties of High Strength Steel Welds by Means of Instrumented Indentation 3:30 pm

Presenter: Abdelbaset Midawi

ROOM 202

Show Description

ROOM 202

Session Summary: In order to assess welded structures it is important to overmatch the weld yield strength with respect to the parent metal yield strength. Typically, this is evaluated using all weld metal and cross weld tensile testing to verify the level of strength overmatching, which actually stress the weld metal in different directions (axial versus transverse direction). Although it is assumed that the weld metal has the same strength in these directions, the thermal cycle of a welding processes such as GMAW can form residual stresses owing to the thermal expansion and contractions may present, and this leads to heterogeneous mechanical properties (anisotropic behaviour in the yield strength). This results in the potential for different strength values to be measured in different 3D directions of the weld. In this work, an innovative instrumented indentation technique using a nearly flat-tip indenter was used to measure yield strength for the high strength steel welds. Using this technique, the yield strength can be measured directly from the load-displacement curves. The yield strength of the weld was measured in two directions, the transverse and longitudinal direction of the weld. The indentation results were compared with DIC tensile test results for all-weld metal and cross-weld specimens; results from the latter specimens also supports the weld displays anisotropy in yield strength, which could lead to potentially under estimating the level of strength overmatch.

Are Welding Simulations Key to Next-Level Growth in Welding Productivity?10:15 am

Presenter: Satya Gajapathi

ROOM 201

Show Description

ROOM 201

Session Summary: This presentation discusses practical welding problems from industry and how simulations are applied to find solutions. Using an example of a stud welding model, optimization of welding parameters to obtain a specific microstructure is presented. Further, multiple examples of thermo-mechanical analysis of large fabricated structures are discussed. Distortion minimization through optimizing welding sequence, fixturing, pre-bending and thermal straightening are demonstrated. The final solutions achieved through simulations would either be impossible to arrive at or would have taken relatively huge amount of time and cost through the conventional approach.

Austenite Formation Rate During Continuous Heating in Microalloyed Steels10:15 am

ROOM 202

Show Description

ROOM 202

Session Summary: Due to the intimate relationship between the resulting microstructures and the mechanical and performance properties after any thermal cycle, the phase transformation of low alloyed steels upon cooling has been widely studied for many years by several different authors. From all the past works, besides the cooling rate, the strong influence of the parent phase characteristics on the kinetics of phase transformation during cooling is constantly highlighted.    
 

Plate Girder Flange Fractures – Lessons Learned10:45 am

ROOM 201

Show Description

ROOM 201

Session Summary: Two significant long-span tapered plate girders at the roof level recently experienced bottom flange fractures where a hanger extended through the bottom flange to support the heavy floor below. The girders spanned 26.5 meters, were 2.4 meters in depth at the hanger, with flanges 100 mm thick and 915 mm wide. Two similar girders that used a different fabrication sequence did not fail. The investigation into material properties, thermal cut edge conditions, welding sequence, residual and applied stresses, and the cause of failure in two girders but not the other two, will be discussed. Several recommendations are forthcoming to minimize the risk of future failures, including fabrication and material standards, joint details, thermal cutting procedures, surface finishing and testing, and the role of the involved parties.

Comparing Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), Cold Wire GMAW and Hot Wire GMAW Using Electrode Negative Polarity for V-Groove Root Passes 10:45 am

Presenter: R. A. Ribeiro

ROOM 202

Show Description

ROOM 202

Session Summary: Direct current electrode negative has the advantage that the majority of heat generated in the arc concentrates in the electrode, which can potentially reduce distortion. Another advantage is increase in the melting rate which accounts for improved productivity. However, the phenomenon of arc climbing and the repulsive metal transfer make this technique less prevalent in the field.

We will also discuss examples of improved performance while contributing to a safer workplace.

 

Alternate Methods of Determining Weldability for Hardenable Steels11:30 am

Presenter: Jeff Molyneaux

ROOM 202

Show Description

ROOM 202

Session Summary: Recent advancements in steel alloy development have allowed manufacturers to reduce weight and increase product life using high strength steels. While steel makers sometimes consider weldability for some of the newer Advanced High Strength Steels, it is ultimately the responsibility of the fabricators to verify if these materials are weldable using methods and procedures that work for their business.

Weldability testing is a sound technique for determining the susceptibility of steel to cracking and other defects. This presentation will explore some of the fundamental weldability tests that are available to fabricators to evaluate new materials. Additionally, new techniques for measuring cooling rates using infrared video has simplified the process of measuring cooling rates and predicting hardness values throughout the HAZ.

Presenter: Michel Gagnon

ROOM 202

Show Description

ROOM 202

Session Summary: This presentation will deal with the welding fume emissions; electrode and base metal composition plus shielding gas influences on the particulate concentration in welder breading zone. This relationship with the hot air convection column velocity and volume to the welding parameters and how welding particulate emissions are contained in the convection column. The importance of understanding the welding fume convection column generated from the puddle, which is about 2,600ºF.  

Evolution of weld fume control will be discussed from early days until today. From the sharing of the above knowledge it is now possible to better protect the welders breathing zone.   

 

FuseRing, the KEY That Enables Pipeline, Refineries and Nuclear Refurbishments to be Connected Using one System2:45 pm

Presenter: Paul Cheng

ROOM 201

Show Description

ROOM 201

Session Summary: For the past 18 +/- years, argument from the pipeline industry was that they cannot weld or flange the last joint. FuseRing technology provides a solution and enables solid state fusion for the entire project. Tie-ins may now be made from wellhead to refineries, and from refineries to shipping terminals. Ship building, nuclear subs are equipped with lots of pipe in very confined spaces and makes it impractical to weld manually. Now many welding process may be automated that in the past was not practical. Welds may now be made in very tight and confined spaces. The process may be used in pipes that are only separated by 1/2" to allow for heating paddles, induction, withdrawal of paddles, forge pipes together / rotate. One shot. The ID profile is easy to regulate.
