It is very difficult to find not only optimized welding condition but also fatigue characteristics of the dissimilar weld. In this study. Low carbon steel (SS41) and austenitic stainless steel (STS304) were welded by GTAW welding with STS309 stainless wire rod and Single Edge Notch specimens were used for the examination of fatigue behavior on welding heat cycle. The fatigue crack growth rate in HAZ of SS41 was the highest. The second was in STS304 bond line and the lowest was in HAS of STS304.
