This report presents the effects and analysis of the effects of Pulsed-Gas Metal Arc Welding's (P-GMAW) on Lean Duplex stainless steel. Although the welding of Duplex and Super Duplex Stainless steels have been well documented in both the laboratory and construction industry, the use of Lean Duplex has not. The purpose for conducting this research is to ensure that the correct Ferrite-Austenite phase balance along with the correct welding procedures are used in the creation of reactor cores for new construction nuclear power generation stations. In this project the effects of Lincoln Electrics ER-2209 GMAW wire are studied. Suggestions and improvements to the welding process are then proposed in order to increase the weldability, strength, gas selection, and ferrite count. The weldability will be measured using X-Ray photography in order to determine if any inclusions, lack of fusion, or voids are found post welding, along with welder feedback. The ferritic point count method in accordance with ASTM A562-08, is employed so that the amount of ferrite and austenite can be calculated in the same manor that is currently being used in industry. These will then be correlated to the tensile strength and impact toughness in the heat-affected zone (HAZ) of the weld based on the ASTM A923 testing method.
