Dear WRC Users,
A major security flaw called “Shellshock” or “Bash” bug was discovered this week. Like many other teams, we took immediate action to patch the vulnerability in...
The Welding Research Council, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit scientific research corporation, brings to bear in the solution of problems in welding and pressure vessel technology the talents of diverse science and engineering specialists. They exchange knowledge, share perspectives, and develop and guide R & D activities. As needed, the Council organizes and manages cooperative programs to advance codes and standards.
The Welding Research Council, Inc. (WRC) has been leading and solving problems in welding and pressure vessel technology since 1935. WRC Bulletins provide a means for the exchange, evaluation and dissemination of technical information and advances in science and engineering.
WRC has published over 500 bulletins that provide a wide variety of information on Fitness-For-Service, welding, and material properties.

The Pressure Vessel Research Council (PVRC) was formed as a part of WRC in 1945 to continue the mode of cooperative research relevant to improved design, fabrication, and reliability during World War II. Its goal was to coordinate and extend research on various aspects of pressure vessel technology under the direction of several Volunteer Committees. It has made major contributions to the nuclear power and petroleum refining industries and the understanding and application of fracture mechanics.
The Materials Properties Council (MPC) was established in 1966 in response to the growing need for engineering properties and materials to support designers and life assessment. MPC receives support from industry, technical organizations, codes and standards developers, and government agencies. MPC has compiled a record of notable progress with projects valued by electric utilities and petroleum companies.
