Size distribution of oxides and toughness of steel weld metals

Shinichi Terashima and H. K. D. H. Bhadeshia


Experiments have been conducted to modify the size distribution of oxide particles in steel weld metals which have predominantly martensitic microstructures. It is found that the toughness improves significantly when the particles are refined, even when the total concentration of oxygen is unchanged in the process.
