Why does the edge of the top plate on a lap joint tend to melt more easily?

To determine

The reason of top plate edge melting easily.

Explanation

The welding technique in which a plate overlaps the another is called the lap welding technique.

First the lap joint is formed by overlapping two plates, then the welding is started on it. The two or more plates which overlap are placed on top of each other.

When the welding on a lap joint is performed, the edge of the top plate starts to melt first and fuses with the surface of bottom plate.

In a lap joint, the heat distribution is not uniform due to the orientation of the plates. One plate overlaps another due to which the bottom plate receives lesser heat than the top plate. The edge of the top plate melts easily due to concentration of direct heat on the plate and hence it starts to melt very easily...
