CDW

Any welding technique used to obtain controlled grain refinement and tempering of the underlying heat-affected zone in the base metal. Various controlled-deposition techniques, such as temper bead (tempering of the layer below the current bead being deposited) and half bead (requiring removal of one-half of the first layer), are included. See 8.1.7.4.3.
