  • Type: VO Lecture
  • Format: Presence

Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to analyse the fundamental concepts allowing to join components. They can describe the consequences of various joining technologies on the prospective mechanical properties of the base materials and the joint components. The students are able to estimate and judge the impact of mechanical residual stress on the properties of the final product.

Subject of course

1. Overview: Basic principles of joining technology 2. Welding processes and equipment (with practical demonstration) 3. Materials and materials behaviour during welding 4. Application and quality control

Teaching methods

The first part of the lecture deals with the fundamentals of joining technology and the modification of the microstructure of the materials accompanying the joining process. In the second part of the lecture, Fronius company will be visited with their "welding mile". The chapter on welding technology will be presented at Fronius.
