Résumé
In the present work, a design of experiment (DOE) technique, the Taguchi method, has been used to optimize the pulsed current gas tungsten arc welding (PCGTAW) parameters for the corrosion resistance of super duplex stainless steel (UNS S32760) welds. A L9 (34) orthogonal array (OA) of Taguchi design which involves nine experiments for four parameters (pulse current, background current, % on time, pulse frequency) with three levels was used. Corrosion resistance in 3.5%NaCl solution was evaluated by anodic polarization tests at room temperature. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) is performed on the measured data and S/N (signal to noise) ratios. The higher the better response category was selected to obtain optimum conditions. The optimum conditions providing the highest pitting potential were estimated. The optimum conditions were found as the second level of pulse current (120 A), second level of background current (60 A), third level of% on time (80) and third level of pulse frequency (5 Hz). Under these conditions, pitting potential was predicted as 1.04 VscE that was very close to the observed value of 1.06 VSCE. As a result of Taguchi analysis in this study, the pulse current was the most influencing parameter on the corrosion resistance and the background current had the next most significant effect. The percentage contributions of pulse current, background current, % on time, and pulse frequency to the corrosion resistance are 66.28%, 25.97%, 2.71%
