Hot microcracking was produced in a bead-on-plate welds deposited by the inert-gas metal-arc process on HY-80, quenched and tempered steel. A relationship was found to exist between the hot microcroacking propensity and the bead geometry. The method chosen to gauge bead geometry was that of measuring the "D" value or the amount of pronouncement of the weld finger.
