Abstract:

Underwater arc welding and oxygen-arc cutting have been used in salvage and repair operations for many years. These processes have been used, however, only at shallow depths, typically less than 100 feet. Before extending the use of arc welding and cutting to significantly greater depths, the feasibility of these processes at the greater depths must be known and potential problem areas must be identified.
