The Robert D. Stout Welding and Joining Laboratory is equipped to produce test weldments by the shielded-metal-arc, gas-metal-arc, gas-tungsten-arc, and submerged-arc processes under accurately controlled parameters of voltage, current, and travel speed. In addition, the Laboratory has facilities for preparing specimens by sawing and flame-cutting and by heating and quenching for various tests that include slow-notch-bend, hardenability, fracture-toughness, weld-restraint-cracking, implant, tension, and creep-rupture testing.
