Abstract : The report provides information on weldable aluminum alloys presently used in the Soviet Union. The report discusses the weldability of the alloys, primarily with respect to inert-gas tungsten-arc welding (TIG) and the inert-gas metal-arc welding (MIG), and describes Soviet research work on improving the weldability of existing aluminum alloys and on developing new alloys with better strength and welding characteristics.
