Dean, G, Cuiuri, D, Norrish, J & Cook, CD, A Versatile Experimental Test Rig for GMA Welding Research, Australasian Welding, 46, 2001, p 33-38.


Welding process research is severely hampered when adequate experimental equipment is not available. With the development of numerous welding processes and the control techniques associated with them, the need now exists for experimental equipment that offers the flexibility to control these processes and to set up parameters associated with the research.

At the University of Wollongong an experimental research rig has been developed based on a digital signal processor control system that offers the researcher the facilities to study the various processes associated with GMA welding.
