As a specialist in the joining of non-metallic materials, such as engineering plastics and composites – which are increasingly used for marine applications, TWI can advise on:
TWI helps our Member companies to plan their move towards increased mechanisation by:
- Prioritising the activities where most savings can be made
- Developing a productivity improvement strategy
- Advising on ways to avoid labour-intensive processes
- Recommending and justify alternative processes
As an independent authority, we liaise with classification societies, ship owners, designers and builders to achieve agreement in areas where traditional specifications are inappropriate.
TWI has been a major contributor to the drafting of National and International Standards for the design and assessment of structures to resist fatigue in both steel and aluminium.
In addition, TWI supports the Marine Corrosion Club, and has published 100 papers over 30 years addressing corrosion cracking of stainless steels.
