ANSI/AWS D8.9M Resistance Spot Welding Behavior of Automotive Sheet Steel Materials

0 0

This standard document presents recommended practices for evaluating the resistance spot welding behavior of automotive sheet steels. The document contains a number of tests and test methods useful in determining the spot welding performance of coated and uncoated automotive sheet steels of all strength levels and compositions. The test methods are designed to assess current range, electrode endurance, and weld properties of automotive sheet steels. The weld property tests include tests for hold time sensitivity, weld hardness, shear-tension strength, and cross-tension strength. The document and the test methods, parameters, and test criteria it contains are designed exclusively for laboratory testing and are not intended as recommended practices or standards for manufacturing operations.
