What causes warpage or distortion during welding?

Warping in welding is caused by shrinkage of weld metal, faulty clamping of parts, faulty preparation and overheating of joints. Distortion in welding is caused by uneven heating, improper sequence and the shrinkage of the deposited metal.

The possibility of distortion in the case of submerged arc welding comment by giving reasons?

The heat input in the case of Submerged Arc Welding (SAW) is higher than that in manual welding process. Reason is that the welding proceeds continuously while the work is rotated. In manual welding, it is controlled by the welder besides the time gap for changeover of electrode, relaxation by operator etc.

What are the problems that can occur with the welding activities and how these can be overcome?

Many problems can be experienced in welding including cracks, infusions and distortion. Generally these can be avoided by eliminating hydrogen, keeping temperature under control and controlling the atmospheric pressure of the environment.

What has the author V A Vinokurov written?

V. A. Vinokurov has written: 'Welding stresses and distortion' -- subject(s): Residual stresses, Welded joints

What is it welding sequence and explain about it?

Weld sequence would specify the order in which welds are to be made on a structure to help against distortion and residual stresses.
