Abstract:

IN AN EFFORT TO COMPENSATE FOR THE DECLINING SKILL LEVELS OF SHIPYARD WELDERS, THIS PROGRAM RESEARCHES THE FEASIBILITY OF BUILDING AN ADAPTIVE WELD CONTROL SYSTEM USING A RULE-BASED EXPERT SYSTEM AND APPROPRIATE SENSORS. THE SHIPYARD WELDING PROCESS THAT CAN BENEFIT MOST FROM SUCH A CONTROL SYSTEM WILL BE IDENTIFIED. THE KEY DETERMINANTS OF WELD QUALITY AND THE TRANSFER FUNCTIONS THAT RELATE THEM WILL BE ESTABLISHED. A PRACTICAL MODEL OF THE WELD PROCESS AND EXPERT SYSTEM WILL BE DEVELOPED AND WILL BE USED TO PROJECT THE QUALITY, CORRECTNESS AND SPEED OF RESPONSE OF A FULLY-DEVELOPED CONTROL SYSTEM.
