Abstract

Steel containing 0.03% carbon, 1.35% copper and 0.84% nickel had yield strength in the 540-625 MPa (78-90 Ksi) range depending on thickness, ultimate tensile strength in the 625-690 MPa (90-100 Ksi) range, and 25-30% elongation when air cooled after hot rolling. No brittle heat-affected zone was formed during manual or automatic submerged arc welding without pre-heating or post-heating. The fracture toughnesses in the plate and in the heat-affected zone were excellent.
