What holds the molten weld pool in place on a vertical weld?

To determine

The mechanism by which molten weld pool is held in place on a vertical weld.

Explanation

Welding in vertical positions is one of the difficult welding techniques and should be carried out meticulously. The welding is vertical position is called the "out of position" welding and it is also the most common one.

While making a weld in vertical position, controlling the size of molten weld pool is very important. The molten weld pool size is to be controlled because if the size of the molten weld pool exceeds the certain limit, the chances of molten weld pool dripping down the weld become very high.

Thus, the welding in vertical position is carried out in such a manner that the size of molten weld pool is limited to the extent that it can be supported by the new shelf every time the older shelf gets solidified.
