WRC succeeds. Its record reflects the dedication and expertise
of the WRC and PVRC committee members and the adaptability
of the WRC structure. Committees identify the areas in
which joining and pressure vessel technology must be advanced
and provide a forum for the exchange, evaluation, and
dissemination of the pertinent technical information.
Time, talent, and funds are focused and committed - ruled
solely by the technical significance of the problem at
WRC publications - records of important progress in
welding and pressure vessel research - are applications
oriented and provide specific recommendations based
on validated technology. Whether on fitness for service,
weld crack prevention or toughness, over 475 WRC Bulletins
convey the knowledge gained from diverse sources at
the cost of millions of dollars.
The Forum of Choice
FOR: Equipment Fabricators, Engineering Companies, Electric
Utilities, Petroleum and Chemical Companies, Materials
Producers, Designers, Owners of Pressure Vessels, Codes
and Standards Developers, Regulatory Bodies, Scientific
and Technical Organizations,and Consultants.
Minimizing cost while expanding research and development
and exploring technical innovations are important objectives
for corporations in today's highly competitive world.
Cooperative research is the key to advanced technology,
improved efficiency, and increased productivity - the
least cost for the maximum benefit.
The Welding Research Council brings together science and
engineering specialists in developing the solutions to
problems in welding and pressure vessel technology. They
exchange knowledge, share perspectives, and execute R
& D activities. As needed, the Council organizes and
manages cooperative programs.
The Council is the focal point for those prepared to pursue
needed research; address unresolved technical issues;
consider new approaches; examine published and unpublished
test results; develop new test methods; seek understanding.
The WRC cooperative approach and procedures for leveraging
Technology - Advanced and Improved
- validated technology, economically developed
- no duplication of effort
- no replication of available data
- best use of talent, time, and dollars
Since its founding in 1935, more than 1000 WRC projects,
programs, and studies have led to new and improved
Today's Investment - Tomorrow's
- joining materials
- design concepts
- processes and procedures
- inspection methods
- codes, standards, and specifications
Recipients of WRC grants to universities decades ago are
today's leaders in industry. Supporting the interaction
of academia and industry, the Council enlarges and enriches
the pool of talent industry can draw upon in the search
for advanced joining and pressure vessel technology. New
and innovative research seeds broader programs. Practical
experience at the university level in WRC programs produces
scientists and engineers who join industry and the technical
community ready to contribute.
