Abstract. The weldability of the steels represents a problem of great interest in order to achieve welded structures that satisfy the high requirements on quality, imposed by the nowadays applications. In this paper has been proposed a more advanced model that has considered more factors of weldability influence, thus allowing a more detailed analysis based on the main welding process variables.
