Review on effect of flux composition on its behavior and bead geometry in submerged arc welding (SAW)

Performance of a welding flux is decided by the physical and chemical properties of its constituents. The flux selected should show a good welding behavior and the required weld bead geometry. The mechanical properties of a joint are not only decided by its composition but these also depends on bead geometry, dimensions and physico-chemical properties of fluxes. These properties include surface tension, viscosity, heat...

Study of effects of burner configuration and jet dynamics on characteristics of inversed diffusion flames

The effect of the geometric parameters and jet dynamics of the port array inverse diffusion flame (IDF) burner on the flame characteristics were investigated experimentally usingliquefied petroleum gas (LPG) fuel. The geometric parameters are the central air flow area, the fuel jets flow area, the number of the fuel jets and the radius of the pitch circle around which the fuel ports are arranged. The jet dynamics...
