Abstract : The results of this study indicate that techniques can be developed to produce uncontaminated double-beveled, fillet reinforced welded joints in thick plate alloy titanium using out-of-chamber, manual, all position shielded inertgas, consumable electrode, short circuit welding processes. Further development of these welding techniques is necessary to minimize or eliminate the occurrence of lack of fusion and cold shutting defects in the weldments. It is believed that improved welder skill and an increase in inductance in the power supply may help to overcome these difficulties. (Author)
