Eleventh International Conference on Computer Technology in Welding



Thomas A. Siewert, C Pollock


These are proceedings of the eleventh conference in this series. The conference was held December 5 and 6, 2001, in Columbus, Ohio, under the sponsorship of the American Welding Society, NIST, and The proceedings include 32 presentations grouped into sessions on: sensing and control of GMAW, sensing and control of GTAW, sensing and control of VPPAW, imaging, fabrication quality and standards, sensing and control systems, modeling of distortion and stress, predicting microstructure and performance, and general modeling topics. The large number of submissions required the papers to be divided into two parallel tracks: a sensing and control track, and a modeling track. In addition, there was a keynote talk on our progress toward total automation. These proceedings include all the manuscripts that were submitted (including viewgraphs).
