The discovery of new methods of electric welding made by E. O. Paton solved many problems of supplying the Army with necessary military equipment. After the Great Patriotic war Paton's methods of autogenous welding were successfully used in construction work.
A wonderful piece of metallurgy art, the bridge over the Dnieper in Kyiv, was constructed under E. O. Paton's supervision in 1949. It was named after its creater.
The Electric Welding Insdtitute named after Paton is now the largest centre of welding science. New problems of welding in outer space have been developed by its creative staff serving the scientific and technical progress of our country.
