In a study conducted for the National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP), EWI demonstrated that buried arc gas metal arc welding (GMAW-B) could be a superior method for joining thick steel metal plates with lower distortion.
This work is discussed in a paper by EWI associates Nick Kapustka and Paul Blomquist, High Penetration Buried Arc Gas Metal Arc Welding for Steel Plate Fabrication.
