ONE-SIDED BUTT WELDING ON SHIP'S BUILDING BERTH

Both flux and gas-shielded welding were found to be sensitive to root gap, and the general trend was for the weld bead to become wider and thinner as the root gap increased. To reduce the effects of root gap, a method has been devised whereby electrical resistive melting is used to deposit an insert of variable cross-section in joints of variable gap. Ordinary soda-lime glass, as a backing material, offered the best resistance to erosion.
