The Authors review developments in underwater cutting, with particular reference to the worldwide literature on this subject and to the following wet-cutting methods: Flame Cutting; Arc Cutting with Solid Stick-Electrodes; Oxygen-Arc Cutting with Hollow Stick-Electrodes; Plasma Cutting; Water-Jet Arc-Cutting with Wire Electrodes. Some special cutting-processes, and dry-cutting under water, are also reviewed. Trends in these developments are discussed, including those relating to underwater cutting in deep waters, and brief information is given on experimental work by the GKSS at Geesthacht (West Germany) on deep-water welding and cutting.
