Course overview: This course is specifically aimed at design personnel who need to be able to understand the interaction of welding technology and weld design with structural/mechanical design concepts. The course also provides a very good overview of welding technology which makes the training suitable for other non design personnel.

Course content:Welding terminology; welding processes: features for selection and design considerations; edge preparations & joint design selection; application of weld symbols; material and consumable selection; concepts of weldability; welding procedures and qualification; distortion and residual stresses; fatigue and brittle fracture; NDT techniques and design considerations; case studies for effective welding design.

Suitable for:

Non welding and welding design personnel, CAD personnel, welding engineers and welding supervisors who are required to understand the technical considerations of welding design

Course outcomes:

On completion of the course you will be able to:

  • Understand¬† the interaction of various welding technology topics that influence effective weld design
  • Apply weld symbols effectively and correctly to engineering drawings.
  • Appreciate advantages and limitations of welding processes in relation to design
  • Deduce suitable joint designs for a given welding processes and applications.
  • Understand welding process applications and their impact on quality and productivity.
  • Understand how weld design can affect welding procedures and qualification testing requirements and costs.
  • Understand joint design concepts for improving fatigue life and minimising the risk of brittle fracture.
  • Understand different weldability problems of various materials and the basis for welding consumable selection.
  • Appreciate how health and safety requirements may influence weld design choices.
  • Understand the effects of residual stress on distortion and the techniques for distortion control.
  • Identify the main welding defects seen in welded joints and how they affect quality categories of welds
  • Appreciate the implication of non-destructive testing and its influence on effective weld design.
