Welding information system--design, operations, methods Latendresse, Vincent


An innovative knowledge management system has been developed using the methods and techniques available through micro-computers and WINDOWS 3.1: The WISDOM project aims at research and development of an innovative and comprehensive information collection on welding in close cooperation with industry utilizing modern micro-computer techniques of information review, retrieval, storage, updating, and transfer. Emphasis is placed on new and more efficient methods of knowledge communication, pursuing the idea of exploring knowledge (in contrast to rehearing recipes). The development of this project concentrates on the following three main topics. •Knowledge Base on Steel Metallurgy and Welding; •Analysis and Design Methods for Welded Steel Connections; •Design Requirements of Welds. This includes the considerations of different types of welds and joints and a thorough review of welding history and basic welding procedures.
