What is re-clad?

In the marine industry, when something is re-cladded, it is a metal that has been built up to original dimensions. For example, a tail shaft is eroded. To effect a repair, the shaft is machined down past the erosion and pitting. Then the shaft is built up again using submerged arc welding to original dimensions where it would be machined to the final dimensions. We would say then the the shaft had been re-cladded.

Presumably, both the original matrices and the result matrix would be stored in 2-dimensional arrays; to do the actual addition, write two "for" loops, one for each row, and one for each column. Inside the inner "for" loop, just add the corresponding elements and place the result in the result matrix.
