Twinning-induced plasticity (TWIP) steels are being considered for a range of applications due to their high strength, ductility, and energy absorption abilities. However, their high alloy content relative to conventional steel alloys presents unique challenges for welding processes utilizing filler metals, which have only begun to be explored. In this work, gas metal arc welding with low alloy, austenitic stainless, and duplex stainless steel filler metals was used to join TWIP steel sheet. The resulting weld metal microstructures and the mechanical properties of the weld metal and heat-affected zone will be discussed.
