Welding of super bainitic and triplex structure steels was studied using AWS A5.5 E11018-M and AWS A5.4 E312-17 electrodes. The existence of martensitic structure at the heat affected zone encourages the occurrence of cold cracking at the HAZ in welding of both super bainitic and triplex steels. Using E312-17 electrode renders the occurrence of cold cracks at the heat affected zone of these steels. The tensile strength of welded joints using E11018-M electrode is higher than that of the pure weld metal of E11018-M electrode. This could be attributed to the dilution of weld metal from the base metal especially carbon content. The V– notch impact test results using E312-17 electrode were slightly higher than that obtained using E11018-M electrode. This could be attributed to the occurrence of cold cracks using E11018-M electrode in addition to the tough austenitic weld metal using E312-17 electrode.
