Application of analysis of variance techniques to a data base of weldingtests has indicated that the equations necessary to describe bead width, height, and penetration already exist and a further relation for undercut has been derived. The equations established have been used to construct an interactive computer program to predict welding procedures. The possibility of expanding this approach to include joint gap and other arc welding processes is discussed.
