Weld Repair of Aircraft Quality Magnesium Castings
GENERAL techniques used in the weld repair of magnesium aircraft castings by both gas and arc welding methods are described here. Coverage is given to equipment, methods of surface preparation, preheating, welding procedure, post-heat-treatment. Some typical arc weld repair jobs are described and illustrated. Included also are descriptions of weld defects encountered because of poor welding technique. Typical mechanical property data are shown.
