The course provides a survey over the mostly used welding technologies and a basic metallurgical understanding for planning and realization of welded joints.
The students will gain the competence and understanding to select welding processes properly, to specify the seam preparation and to predict the achievable welding results.
The cours presents in some detail the welding processes gas welding, TIG, MIG/MAG, Fillerwire welding arc welding and laser welding. After the resentation of the basics of welding the special properties of the different process technologies are explained and the energy sources and the interaction between the process energy and the material discussed. The metallurgical basics to answer material problems are presented. From this process parameters can then be derived, to achieve the desired seam qualities.
will be distributed accompanying the course progress together with the lecture slides.
