THE MIT/MARINE INDUSTRY COLLEGIUM. OPPORTUNITY BRIEF NO. 4. ADVANCES IN UNDERWATER WELDING
The purpose of the brief is to outline the needs and the potential for underwater welding and to indicate some current, promising techniques. There is an existing need for technology that permits permanent, code-quality welding underwater. The need grows out of the increasing numbers of offshore structures that require repair from time to time. Further, if such technology were available, the construction industry could take advantage of certain new procedures in building offshore structures. Some new technology is already available. Additional advances appear at hand. Existing new methods of underwater welding and the directions of current research that show promising potential are reported.
