Content and learning outcomes
Basic strength of materials - short update; Strength aspects of various metallic construction materials; Work procedures for the design of welded products; Constructive design; Static and dynamic design of welded joints; Choice of welding class and safety factors; Joint design and placement, Impact of additive material; Standards and documentation.
Intended learning outcomes
After passing the course the student will be able to:
- give an account of basic terminology and definitions for strength and dimensioning of welds
- describe differences in strength and performance of different materials under loads, both static and dynamic
- explain important concepts, such as structural design, centre of gravity, centre of twist, utilization rate and safety factors
- identify critical areas with high loads in a welded structure and the necessary improvement actions
- account for and calculate the strength of welded joints and welded structures and describe dimensioning methodologies
- describe the impact of factors such as temperature, load cases and corrosive environments on the structural strength of a welded structure
- explain common welding symbols and how these are used in engineering drawings

Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- DEL1 - Attendance, - credits, grading scale: P, F
- HEM1 - Home assignments, 3.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
- TEN1 - Written exam, 3.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- 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.
