Process Monitoring and On-line Modeling of the Gas Metal Arc Welding Process (GMAW). Progress in development of Advanced Process and Equipment for GMAW, especially in Autcmiated and Mechanised Welding, requires clear understanding of the physical phenomena of the Welding Process . The objective of this thesis is to design and develop modem experimental facilities capable of providing instrumentation and photography to record welding phenomena, so as to allow a thorou^ study of the physical welding processes.
