Abstract:

Training effectiveness of a prototype arc welding simulator was evaluated by comparing 13 naive welding students trained under conventional methods with 14 subjects trained under the following experimental procedure quarter-time simulator practice, quarter-time awaiting use of the simulator, and half-time actual welding practice. Preliminary data indicated that the simulator trainees, with substantially less welding practice and combined weldingsimulator practice, may perform as well as the conventionally trained subjects. A description and physical evaluation of the apparatus is provided as well as an outline of its potential advantages. Modified author abstract
