The modern material assemblies require the combined use of alloys for a given commercial application. Welding technologies are of critical importance for the construction of virtually all components of the assemblies. This course aims to elaborate the physical principles of arc, plasma, laser, resistance spot, electron beam and solid state welding processes. This includes, physics of electric arc-plasma, engineering the arc-plasma for welding, metal transfer and mass flow in the weld pool, laser/electron beam - material interactions, pressure and force balance in keyhole mode power beam welding, fundamentals of heat generation by Joule heating and process principles and overview on types of resistance and solid state welding processes.
INTENDED AUDIENCE : Masters students in Metallurgical, Mechanical, Automobile and Production Engineering. Practicing welding engineers, welders, R&D personnel in academia and national laboratories, quality management personnel from welding and manufacturing industries and research scholars who are working in welding and joining.
PREREQUISITES : Graduates of Metallurgical/Mechanical/Automobile/Production Engineering
INDUSTRY SUPPORT : Construction, Fabrication, Automobile and Power generation industries and research labs
