The paper first discusses the present status of underwater welding research and development efforts carried in various laboratories in the world and how the research at Massachusetts Institute of Technology fits into the total picture. The paper then describes the three-year research program entitled "Fundamental Research on Underwater Welding" conducted from July 1971 to June 1974 at M.I.T. for the National Sea Grant Office. The program covered the following phases: Phase I: Survey of fundamental information on underwater welding and cutting. Phase 2: A study of heat flow during underwater welding. Phase 3: Mechanisms of metal transfer in underwater welding. Phase 4: Effects of water environment on metallurgical structures and properties of welds. Phase 5: Development of improved underwater welding methods.
