Thirteenth International Conference on Computerization of Welding

The Thirteenth International Conference on Computer Technology in Welding was held June 18, 2003 in Orlando, Florida, under the sponsorship of the American Welding Society, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and The Welding Institute. These proceedings include all the manuscripts that were submitted (including viewgraphs)—twelve presentations grouped into sessions on modeling (general topics), modeling (weld pool and solidification), weld data flow, and computers and automation. Additional copies of this NIST Special Publication 1008 are available from the National Technical Information Service (NTIS) or the Government Printing Office (GPO).
