Özet

Ship building is one of the oldest and heaviest industries. In order to join steel plates appropriately, welding is the most common method during production process, and it is used in approximately every process during ship production. The most applied welding methods are gas metal arc welding (GMAW), shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), flux core arc welding (FCAW), and submerged arc welding (SAW). Most of the particles emitted during welding process are considered as hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). The impacts of these emissions to the environment and human health are well-known and documented. In recent studies, it is stated that welding workers are under a great threat.
