A research program at the University of Alberta is setting out to revolutionize the welding industry by investigating new methods and processes at the molecular level. Studies will investigate the principles of magnetohydrodynamics—first developed as a way to study behavior on the surface of the sun—which will help researchers better understand what takes place in the extremely high temperatures produced by welding arcs.
