Abstract:

The use of nonthermionic cathodes was investigated as a heat-energy source for welding in space. This program included the design, manufacture, and performance of welding tests on two tools. One tool, using an annular cathode, was designed to weld tubing up to 38-inch outside diameter and wires and rods as large as 18-inch diameter. The second tool, with a linear cathode, was designed to produce linear welds of variable length. The tools were built and tested. Author
