Aims 

After having passed this course module the student is able to:
- work out welding procedures tests and metallographic investigations
- define the quality parameters for welded joints
- plan the capacity test by experimental investigation for welded joints and components
- write a scientific article about this kind of investigation

 
Contents 

During the course the student will become familiar with the welding processes in practice
(MAG-manual/robotic and laser) and carry out metallurgical research (micro-macro level
analyses, hardness measuring, etc.). Measure geometrical and residual stresses or strains (by
strain gauges and ARAMIS) and deformations & loads. Reporting the presenting the research
work.
