This article discusses some of the consumable and process developments aimed at more economical welding of ship steels. A particular situation is chosen to give some idea of the extent of the detail and of the need for careful interpretation. The work reported here indicates, that it is possible to make an economical machine weld on higher tensile steels and meet the requirements of the classification societies. Because it is possible to use the fluxes in what is a catastrophically wrong way, shipyards wishing to exploit these developments must proceed with caution and be prepared for a good deal of in-plant testing.
