Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

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

Upon completion of this course the student will have

  • deep knowledge of strength of welded details and welded structures
  • ability to conduct analysis of the strength of a welded structure
  • ability to accomplish a design work including strength calculations of welded constructions
  • ability to use FEM programs as an aid for analysis of welds as to strength
  • ability to plan flexible welding system with and without a robot
  • ability to accomplish an optimized choice of material, consumables, welding process including optimization of the total weld quality and costs.

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


  • TEN1 - Examination, 3,0 hp, betygsskala: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
