Abstract

The development of production technology and raw materials metals can’t be separated from the use of welding technology. This time the connection with the welding method has been widely applied in the field of construction. But in fact the result of the welding field will experience a tensile stress that will cause damage and leakage at the connection. So to anticipate such damages done a test, wherein the test includes testing destructive testing and non-destructive. In this study, the welding method used is welding SMAW (Shielded Metal Arc Welding) and welding FCAW (Flux Core Arc Welding) as the welding process. After the welding process is then performed a simulation using Abaqus software to determine the tensile strength of the weld results prior to mechanical testing. In addition to tensile testing is conducted as for testing hardness testing and testing of micro structure to get the value of roughness and value of the composition at the weld region, HAZ (Heat Affected Zone), and the area outside of the HAZ.
