A butt weld joint is developed on steel plates having yield and ultimate tensile strength of $$500$$ $$MPa$$ and $$700$$ $$MPa,$$ respectively. The thickness of the plates is $$8mm$$ and width is $$20mm.$$ Improper selection of welding parameters caused an undercut of $$3mm$$ depth along the weld. The maximum transverse tensile load (in $$kN$$) carrying capacity of the developed weld joint is _________________

For spot welding of two steel sheets (base metal) each of $$3$$ $$mm$$ thickness, welding current of $$10000$$ $$A$$ is applied for $$0.2$$ $$s$$. The heat dissipated to the base metal is $$1000J.$$ Assuming that the heat required for melting $$1m{m^3}$$ volume of steel is $$20J$$ and interfacial contact resistance between sheets is $$0.0002$$$$\Omega$$, the volume (in $$m{m^3}$$) of weld nugget is _____________

In a $$DC$$ $$arc$$ welding operating, the length characteristic was obtained as $${V_{arc}} = 20 + 5l$$ where the $$arc$$ length $$l$$ was varied between $$5mm$$ and $$7mm.$$ Here $${V_{arc}}$$ denotes the arc voltage in volts. The $$arc$$ current was varied from $$400A$$ to $$500A.$$ Assuming linear power source characteristic, the open circuit voltage and the short circuit current for the welding operation are
A
$$45V, 450A$$
B
$$75V, 750A$$
C
$$95V, 950A$$
D
$$150V, 1500A$$

Two steel bars each of diameter $$10mm$$ are coaxially friction welded end to end at an axial pressure of $$200MPa$$ and rotational speed of $$400rpm$$. The coefficient of friction between the mating faces of the rotating bars is $$0.50.$$ The torque is assumed to act at the $$3/{4^{th}}$$ radius of the rotating bar. The power (in $$kW$$) consumed at the interface of the welding is
A
$$12.33$$
B
$$16.44$$
C
$$18.50$$
D
$$24.66$$
