The determination of the welding parameters for pipeline welding is based on a skilled welder’s know-how and long-term experiences rather than on theoretical and analytical techniques. In this paper, an intelligent system for the determination of welding parameters for each pass and welding position, for pipeline welding based on one database and a finite element method (FEM) model, and on two back-propagation (BP) neural network models and a corrective neural network (CNN) model was developed and validated. The preliminary test of the system has indicated that the system could determine the welding parameters for pipeline welding quickly, from which good weldments can be produced without experienced welding personnel. Experiments using the predicted welding parameters from the developed system proved the feasibility of interface standards and intelligent control technology to increase productivity, improve quality and reduce the cost of system integration.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
