Title: IMPROVEMENTS IN OR RELATING TO WELDING

Abstract

An arc welding method is described in which an arc is struck between an electrode and a weld puddle on a workpiece. A stream of inert gas is supplied at the point of welding to shield the weld puddle from the atmosphere surrounding the weld puddle. An annular second stream of inert gas is supplied to an area of the workpiece surrounding the weld puddle. The temperature of the annular stream is sufficiently high and the area is sufficiently large to reduce the temperature gradient from the weld puddle to the workpiece and prevent subsequent cracking of the weld. (N.W.R.)
