Abstract

In the last half century, lightweight magnesium alloy has gradually shifted from military applications to civil applications. More noteworthy is that its low melting point, high thermal conductivity, and superior fluidity are good for weld pool flow and welding parameter research. This paper presents a novel approach to these characteristics, which analyzes the influences of electron beam welding parameters on weldment strength and defect formation by linking Taguchi's method with the grey relational analysis. Not only are the parameter contribution and the defect weight individually quantified, but also the relationship between welding parameters and defect dimensions can also be obtained this way.
