This work includes an investigation of the effect and optimization of welding parameters on the tensile strength in the arc metal welding process. The experimental studies were conducted under varying welding currents, wire diameters, and heat input. The settings of welding parameters were determined by using the Taguchi experimental design method. The level of importance of the welding parameters on the tensile strength is determined by using analysis of variance (ANOVA). The optimum welding parameter combination was obtained by using the analysis of signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio. The tensile strength model was formulated based on Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) using Minitab® statistical package. The experimental results confirmed the validity of the used Taguchi method for enhancing the welding performance and optimizing the welding parameters in the arc metal welding process.
