The present research was undertaken to demonstrate the effects of heat treatment on the welded joints. The material used was mild steel and aluminum. Ten flat tensile specimens, ten mounted specimens for micro structure test were prepared for steel and four flat tensile specimens, four mounted specimens for micro structure. This project is an effort to establish better understanding about the heat treatment of the welded joints. The scope of work includes the preparation of test specimens for tensile testing and micro structure analyses.
