EN 1011-1 or CEN/TR 14599
Heat input, energy introduced into the weld region during welding per unit length.
Heat input. The energy applied to the workpiece during welding.
Heat input rate. The heat input per unit length of weld.
The heat input during welding can be viewed as a main influencing factor on the
properties of ferritic and ferritic-austenitic stainless steel welds in particular. This
influences the time/temperature cycle occurring during welding.
EN 1011-1 2009, Section 8.7
Thermal efficiency factor k are in accordance with Table 1 of EN 1011-1 : 2009.
ASME IX 2017
What is the difference between arc energy and heat input?
Arc energy is the energy supplied by the welding arc to the workpiece before the efficiency of the process is considered.
|Code||EN 1011||ASME IX|
|Heat input =||arc energy x k||arc energy|
|Refer to||k factor, see Table 1 of EN 1011-1||see QW-409.1 a)|
