Study on Underwater Welding ( Report 1 ) - Its Weldability -

  • Published : 1983.03.01


Recently, many studies for developing the underwater welding techniques have been carried out in the advanced countries as a manufacturing process and a repairing method according as a great deal of interest in development for various marine industrial fields has been gradually increased. But no study on such underwater welding is available at present in our country. In this study, underwater welding was carried out for welding of domestic structural steel plates (SM41A) of 10 mm thickness, using six types of domestic coated arc welding electrodes on a self-made gravity type underwater welding device, resulting in investigation for the underwater weldability of the domestic structural steel plates as well as for the underwater welding properties and practicability of the domestic welding electrodes.
