With the advancement of welding techniques, Arc-welding is one of the most commonly and widely used welding technique for variety of purposes. The underside of welding to be performed makes the molten pool going downward because of gravity vector pulling affects the molten pool. The main purpose of this study is to study how the molten of electrode produced reduce on going downward and produce a good root fusion in overhead position of welding in single V-butt joint with the help of magnetic field on the workpiece. The study of magnet characteristic which includes the behaviour of molten pool toward magnetic field, the macrostructure and microstructure and its strength should be carried out. Each magnet strength has their own characteristics that affects toward weldment on base metal. As a result, it can be concluded that having a magnetic field applies on base metal A36 low carbon steel may reduce the molten pool from going downward. The selection of a correct magnet strength and welding process may produce good and quality weldment especially in terms of its weld properties and geometry. Index Terms: magnetic field, molten pool, low carbon steel, gravity, microstructure.
