Distortion control during and after welding is an important aspect of construction and quality. This paper, aims at distortion control during welding for butt welded joints using methods of sequential welding and welding by jigs and fixtures. First part consists of welding butt joint and controlling the distortion caused in plates of thickness of 4 mm and 8 mm. In sequential welding three welding sequences were created and executed. The second part consists of same sequences done again using stiffeners in 4mm and 8 mm thick plates as welding fixtures.
