    Gas tungsten arc (GTA) welds on Al-4 wt% Cu alloys were investigated to determine effects of gravitational orientation on the weld solidification behavior. A bead-on-plate welding was performed by varying the relation between the arc translation direction and gravity vector, e.g., parallel-up,...
