Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

Materials (mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum, cast iron, etc.) and their behavior during welding. Welding additives (different types for different welding processes, materials), Metrology, standards and documentation.

Intended learning outcomes

After passing this course, the student will be able to:

  • thoroughly describe the materials technology of welding (weldability and how materials are affected)
  • describe different metals and their alloys, and their properties in welded constructions
  • describe how different pre- and post-treatment methods affects the materials
  • describe advantages and disadvantages of different surface coating methods
  • describe how the environment (corrosion, temperature, wear) affects materials and welded constructions
  • analyse risks of a welded construction and its defect tolerance
  • correctly select material and appropriate welding methodology

Ethical approach

  • All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
  • In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
  • In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
