Weld Design, Standards and Qualification

Webinars 23 August 2022

Reaction Engines Exclusive Webinar: Weld Design, Standards and Qualification

The qualification of welding procedures and personnel, typically via welding and testing, is essential to ensure that welded products meet the desired requirements and properties. Welding qualifications of structural or safety-critical components are normally carried out to national or international standards, such as the ISO 15614 series, ISO 9606 series and Section IX of the ASME B&PV Code. To quote the latter: codes and standards are not handbooks and “cannot replace education, experience, and the use of engineering judgement”. So, the application of such standards requires a degree of interpretation and may raise difficult questions.

There will be a Q&A session after the presentation and TWI is happy to run a more in depth webinar on the above technology, if requested by Reaction Engines staff.
