Welding activities

Production of welded samples of representative stainless steel base materials, using industry best practice
welding processes and procedures will be performed. Steel grade, surface quality, weld process, heat input, shielding gas and filler material will be varied systematically to assess its effect on surface oxide formation. The samples will be used in subsequent work packages for oxide characterization and corrosion testing.

In-situ measurements of local temperatures within the heat affected zone and also monitoring of possible
evaporation of key elements will be performed.
