Abstract Report describing the research carried out to determine the conditions for an efficient elimination of harmful substances produced by welding: initial situation, problem definition, methods, research work (general information on ventilation, measurement of temperature rise during welding, measurement of pollution and air movements produced by various welding techniques, tests on models). In the light of the results obtained, rules for the design and construction of welding benches are set out. Air pollution may be reduced at little cost by use of welding benches with built-in exhaust systems as described in this document.
