Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

A survey of problems in welding technology with a focus on the sections about weldability of different steels and welding methods. Welding lab exercises

Intended learning outcomes

After completing the course with a passing grade the student should be able to:

  • describe fundamentals in materials technology of welding
  • account for the basic process technology for welding
  • outline the fundamentals in processing of welding
  • describe fundamentals in strength of materials in welded constructions
  • based on material and process technology data assess basic risks for cracking in welded joints
  • based on material and process technology data assess the breakdown safety of a design during normal operation
  • choose an appropriate combination of material and process to give structural strength

Course Disposition

The course is given full-time 2 days/week. on average every second week during 2 months. The course is partly a distance learning course, which implies that quite a lot homework is required. The course has high attendance requirements. The education is given in Swedish. Lab exercises are given in welding and cutting methods
