In the marine industries, defects in welded joints are repaired to improve the performance. It is possible that a welded joint is repaired once or twice. In this research, effect of repair on microstructure, mechanical properties and corrosion behavior of welded joints of 5083-H321 aluminum alloy using pulsed MIG process was investigated. The results show that excess heat due to increasing the number of repair causes recrystallization, grain growth and increasing the grain size in the heat affected zone. The results of tensile test and micro hardness show loss of mechanical properties in heat affected zone of the sample that subjected to repair twice. Also, this sample shows a substantially passive region in the weld metal and the heat affected zone and hence more stable resistance to pitting corrosion.
