Welding provides architects & engineers with an economical technique for complete freedom in structural design & development. The widespread recognition of welding as a safe means of making structural connections has come about only after years of diligent efforts & heavy documentation of research findings & successes.
This course will discuss the different welding techniques used in the structural engineering fields, residual stresses, and how to minimize weld distortion. It will also focus on the means of achieving safe designs for welded structural connections, providing participants with the necessary skills to ensure the long-term safety of their structures. Issues of static load & fatigue will be discussed, along with possible design improvements.
