Metal Stitching Repair

What information is available on metal stitching as a repair process?

DSIAC was asked to find academic and peer-reviewed publications to assist in determining if cold metal stitching is a viable repair process for a cracked cast, steel pedestal.  DSIAC enlisted the assistance of a subject matter expert to discuss the problem and perform literature searches in the DTIC Research and Engineering (R&E) Gateway and open sources for relevant publications. Academic and industrial case studies found in open sources were summarized and analyzed for relevance to the inquiry.  This information was compiled into a response report delivered to the inquirer.
