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

Upon completion of this course, the student will have

  • deeper knowledge of materials technology of welding
  • deeper knowledge of different metals and their properties in welded constructions
  • knowledge of quality techniques at production by welding
  • knowledge of current computer systems and cost for welding operations
  • knowledge of applications of strength of materials on welded constructions
  • knowledge of applications of fracture mechanics on welded constructions, pressure vessels etc.
  • ability to perform design calculations on a welded component
  • ability to analyse defect tolerance of a casualty critical construction

Course Disposition

The classes are mainly concentrated to two full days of studies, in average every second week during two months. In between classes, homework assignments and preparation work have to be completed. High degree of attendance to classes is required.

Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

Grading scale

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F


  • LAB1 - Laboratory Work, 3,0 hp, betygsskala: P, F
  • TEN1 - Examination, 3,0 hp, betygsskala: 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.

Other requirements for final grade

Written examination (TEN1; 3 credits)
Lab work (LAB1; 3 credits)

Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
