Underwater Welding - Present Status and Future Scope
Keywords:Under water welding, TIG, MIG, SAW, laser, friction
Welding in offshore and marine application is an area of research and understanding where, many problems are still unsolved. In the present paper, a brief description of the different commercial underwater techniques has been made. The problems in underwater welding have also been discussed in context to the existing welding techniques. Detailed description of a few advanced welding techniques has also been made. Finally, the scope of further research has been recommended.
