Abstract: This study determined the voltage, current, and travel speed limits necessary to ensure proper weld strength levels for three construction steels: American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) A36, A516, and A514. To achieve the objective of this study, the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory defined voltage, current. and travel speed limits through bead-on-plate tests and tests to determine the tensile and impact properties of butt joint welds produced with fully automatic gas metal-arc welding and manual shielded metal-arc welding. Then the limits were refmed by using the results of fabricating butt joints under high restraint conditions.
