This document reports the results of a study aimed at developing strategies for improving the reliability of flash butt welded anchor chains. The research included a parametric study of factors affecting the quality of flash welded chains, development of strategies for in-process sensing and control of flash welding, and an effort to reduce the possibility of premature failure of a welded chain.
