Phase 2 Project Summary
    Assessing Current Knowledge
    Task 4.04

    Maintain and Update Literature Database 

    Subcontractor: Stephen Liu 
    Colorado School of Mines 

        The objective of this task is to perform a survey of published technical literature on flux cored arc welding in structural fabrication. The information obtained will be compiled into a database such that individual titles can be easily retrieved for examination. The researchers will survey relevant journals and magazines in the field of structural fabrication and welding to collect publications on flux cored arc welding in structural applications. Publications considered will include those that discuss the welding process and consumables, base metal and weld metal properties, welding defect detection, mechanical testing, structural integrity and properties, and other related topics. The bibliographic data of the literature surveyed will be compiled and organized into a database. The database will be organized in a logical structure for simple management and easy access. The database will be posted on a World Wide Web site on the Internet such that researchers and practitioners in the fields of construction and welding can access it for information. The researchers will work with the authors of an earlier database such that compatibility can be maintained between the two databases. For the sake of continuity and completeness, titles from the existing database will be merged into the new database.
