Abstract : This report summarizes the second year of research involving spectrographic and thermodynamic studies of vapor emission from welding arcs, infrared measurement of the weld pool surface temperature, electroslag welding of titanium, fracture toughness of HY-80, sensors for weld automation and laser welding of aluminum. All results are preliminary except for preprints of five technical papers which have been submitted for publication. (Author)
