      The goalThe goal of this course is to provide a knowledge on the weld solidification that is a fundamentally different process to that of ingot casting, the welding parameters effect on the microstructure developed in weld metal, mechanisms and kinetics of phase transformations during thermal cycle of the base metal, mechanisms and causes of cracking. Such knowledge forms a useful basis for producing the welded joint with required characteristics.
      The outcomeStudents would be qualified to produce welded joint of required properties and without cracks by proper choice of the filler metal, welding parameters and heat treatment operations.
      Contents of lecturesConsider the heterogeneous structure of welded joint, solidification of fusion welds as a function of composition and welding parameters, phase transformations during cooling of weld metal, microstructural changes in heat-affected zone (HAZ), cracking and fracture in welds, residual stresses in welds, transformation and microstructure in welds of steels, aluminium, copper, magnesium, nickel and their alloys.
