Weld Integrity: corrosion, inspection and assessment 'Present knowledge and future solutions' Two-day conference and small, focused exhibition

4-5 April 2006, Manchester Conference Centre.

The conference will consider the corrosion issues associated with weldments influencing fabrication restrictions, impact of environment on defect development, defect identification sizing and location, assessment for safe operation and operational limits of application for welded components. This will be of direct relevance to people with responsibility for fabrication, operation, maintenance and asset management of plant and equipment comprising carbon steels(eg preferential weldment corrosion), corrosion resistant alloys (eg. stress corrosion cracking, localised corrosion), corrosion of solid phase welds (eg light alloys and high temperature alloys), and corrosion associated with dissimilar metal joints.

For more details and registration of interest in presenting and attending, contact James Marrow. E-mail:

Make it with Lasers workshop: Laser materials processing in aerospace and precision manufacturing
