Welding is a fabrication or sculptural process that joints the materials, usually metals or thermoplastics, by inducing fusion. It is as distinct process from lower temperature metal-joining techniques such as brazing and soldering, to high temperature welding process and this process keep the base metal from melted. In addition, to melt the base metal, a filler material is typically added to the joint to form a pool of molten material that cools at room temperature, forming a joint that is usually stronger than the base material. Pressure may also be used along with heat, or by itself, to produce a weldment. The current study presents the effects of distortion that occurred in single-V and single bevel welded mild steel. It also includes the macro and microstructure analysis, mechanical properties and also the consumable usage along the time needed to complete the bevel and welding process. As a result, single- V is way more safe and reliable to use to withhold large load compare to single bevel.In term of financial, single bevel way more ahead.
