Fatigue of bolted joints is discussed, with reference to Standards and factors that influence fatigue resistance.
NDT techniques applicable to electrofusion welded joints in plastics are listed.
The UK organisation NAFEMS is introduced.
Factors that influence surface wettability are discussed briefly, in the context of manual soldering.
Relevant EN Standards are listed.
Effects of welding on the mechanical properties of TMCP steels are outlined.
Production using JIT is briefly described.
The curve is described and its use to estimate fracture toughness of ferritic steels and welds in these steels is...
Qualification of procedure and welding operator are discussed.
Background to these two curves is explained and their differences are described.
The requirements of ASME Section IX are set out.
Wording on this topic from Standards is presented.
Joint preparation for cast iron is discussed briefly.
TWI's work on the assessment of corrosion damage due to loss of thickness at nozzles is introduced.
Assessment methods are discussed where corrosion has resulted in loss of thickness, exposure of cracks and localised high stress.
Maximum operating temperatures and temperature ranges are discussed.
Some standards giving test methods are listed.
As well as simple crimping processes, ultrasonic and resistance welding are used.
These microstructural phases are described and illustrated.
Use of mechanical inserts to provide local wear resistance is described.
