Estimation of the Temperature in the Weld Penetration Channel in Electron Beam Welding


In this paper, the method of experimental estimation of the temperature in a penetration channel in electron beam welding is described on the basis of chemical elements concentration in the vapors above welding zone. The temperature of a vapor-gas phase in the penetration channel is determined when equating calculated and experimental concentrations of the elements.
