Abstract : amor500 steel plates are used as a ballistic material due to their greater hardness and strength properties. This steel can be produced with a 2-30mm thickness sheet which may attain 505-590HV hard-ness. In the present work, Ramor500 steel pairs are joined using asubmerged arc welding (SAW) process and taking various parameters into consideration. An austenitic additional wire is used for the welding process which contains Cr, Ni, and Mn. The source model prototype was developed using ANSYS software and considering a time-dependent three dimensional thermal model with source cooling. The highest tensile stress voltage value was determined in the sample applying a constant current of 250A, 25V and 30cm×min-1 welding speed. It was observed that the welding seam width increases as welding tension grows and that welding height and depth increase and decrease more or less in tandem. A ANSYS thermal cooling analysis revealed that welding tension grows with heat transfer which increases 15mm from the maincenter of the welding area
