The solidification behavior of Al alloy in the double-sided arc welding (DSAW) weld pool was studied in comparison to conventional arc welding. DSAW process increases the columnar-to-equiaxed grain transition (CET). DSAW also decreases the size and amount of porosity in the weld metal zone of Al-Mg aluminum alloy.
