Specifications for Underwater Welding have not yet addressed the effect of water temperature on weldment microstructure. The environmental effects on Underwater Wet Welding using a shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) process are severe with higher quenching rates, porosity, slag inclusions and diffusible hydrogen levels. One of the problems associated with these high quenching rates and high diffusible hydrogen levels is the increased likelihood of underbead cracking in the heat affected zone (HAZ), particularly with steel weldment which have a higher carbon equivalent (approximately greater than 0.3). In this work, the underbead cracking resulting in three underwater test welds made on ASTM 516 grade 70 steel three different water temperatures (2.8 deg C, 10 deg C and 31 deg C) was investigated. This was done by optical and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and by making microhardness measurements. HAZ underbead cracking was observed in all three weldments, but was much less prevalent in the 31 deg C sample and could only be seen at high magnifications in the optical microscope. The cracking in this weldment only appeared to occur in isolated regions where head tempering had been ineffective for some reason. The weldments made at 10 deg C and 2.8 deg C both showed extensive evidence of underbead HAZ cracking typical of that associated with rapid cooling rates, high diffusible hydrogen levels and hard microstructures. SEM studies of the surfaces of these cracks showed evidence for transgranular failure with secondary cracking, both of which are typical of hydrogen induced cracking. This work highlights the importance of water temperature, quenching and diffusible hydrogen levels in underwater wet welding. This is an issue of critical importance in the future wet welding structural repair of Naval ships.

Porosity variation along multipass underwater wet welds and its influence on mechanical properties. for wet underwater welds, because defects are relatively difficult to detect if the defects are beneath the surface of the weld.

Cold cracking is a welding discontinuity or welding defect, depending on the specification upon which the weld is being evaluated. Cold cracking causes sharp edged, narrow crevices to form intermittently or completely throughout the weld and weld heat-affected zone. Welds experience all types of corrosion; however, they are more susceptible to the forms arising from variations in composition and microstructure.

Specific corrosion types are galvanic, stress corrosion, hydrogen cracking, intergranular and pitting corrosion.
