Description

For our first event of the 2018-2019 year, we have will be having Jim Galloway give an introduction to failure analysis - When "Good Welds" go Bad. Join us in room A1203, for the presentation. Pizza and pop/coffee will be provided! This is a great opportunity to network, as well as meet potential future employees coming from the College welding programs.

This talk will introduce the most common mechanisms for the failure of welded components, starting with design or misapplication of the material, to faulty workmanship, or deterioration in service. We will review some of the fundamental design issues, filler metal selection, welding procedures and processes effects, metallurgical effects of fusion welds and cracking mechanisms, plus service induced weld failure mechanisms such as fatigue, wear, corrosion, creep, etc.
