Ninth International Conference on Computer Technology in Welding, September 28-30, 1999, Detroit, MI



Thomas A. Siewert, C Pollock


This is the proceedings of the ninth conference in this series. It was held September 28 to 30, 1999, in Detroit, MI, under the sponsorship of the American Welding Society, NIST, and The Welding Institute. There were 57 papers grouped into sessions on resistance weld simulation, simulation of gas metal arc welding, modeling of weld shape and distortion, modeling of solidification, general modeling, welding documentation, sensing and control of arc quality, droplet control and process automation, automation communication and interfaces, and documentation and database applications. The large number of papers required the papers to be divided into two parallel tracks: a modeling track and a sensing and control track. In addition, there were tutorials on weld cell communication issues and on web page design. This proceedings includes the 39 printed manuscripts that were submitted (including the viewgraphs from the two tutorials). Additional copies are available from NTIS (National Technical Information Service) or the Government Printing Office (GPO) as NIST Special Publication 949.
