Index > Charpy transition temp of all-weld-metal

This perdition is preformed by a neural network analysis of the database of low alloy weld metal from the University of Cambridge

  • The weld metal in the database is all-weld-metal obtained under a constant welding condition of arc energy of 1kJ/mm (heat input of 0.8kJ/mm), interpass temperature of 200ºC and plate thickness of 20mm.
  • The toughness is given by the transition temperature for the Charpy impact value of 28J.
  • A software developed by D. J. C. Mackay at the University of Cambridge was used for the neural network analysis.
  • The prediction gives the degree of the prediction error.

When the difference between the max and min predicted values is over 30ºC, the prediction may be unreliable.

The following figure shows the relation between the estimation (vertical axis) and the database (horizontal axis).
