Abstract

As thinner members are used in marine construction, the use of conventional joining techniques result in significant angular and buckling distortion due to the inherent high heat input with these processes. Several low heat input alternatives, including laser beam, gas metal arc, and hybrid laser-arc welding are explored. The paper focuses on process development, real time distortion measurements and implementation of these processes.
