Abstract : With the advancement of modern day high-energy welding technology, electron beam (EB) welding shows promise for application to specialized areas of welding fabrication in the shipbuilding industry. The findings of this report indicate that EB welding can be compared to the conventional methods of welding in the shipbuilding industry and be feasible as long term investment. With the present day state-of-the-art minicomputers and automatic tracking systems, EB welding could be readily adapted to production line fabrication such as is required for the flat panel and T-stiffener to panel assembly areas.
