This project examines the various properties that influence arc welding of metals. Electrical and thermal factors are examined in regard to the electrode, the workpiece, and assembly design. Both thermal and electrical properties are explored, including melting temperature, electrical conductivity, specific heat capacity, thermal diffusivity, and thermal expansion coefficient. Students will determine which material is best suited for an electrode based on these material properties.
