Aerospace Materials and Joining Technology
Welding health and safety; terminology; TIG, MIG welding processes; electron beam welding, friction welding; codes and standards; weld joint design; welding defects; MPI, eddy current, radiography and ultrasonic examination; weldability of aerospace materials; degradation and corrosion of aerospace materials; plastics and adhesives; brazing and soldering. Approximately 25% of the course is spent in hands-on sessions and demonstrations.
The Science of Adhesion
The intention of this course is to concentrate on the science rather than the technology of adhesion, with emphasis on basic and advanced concepts of interfacial physics and chemistry. Wetting and spreading is considered in depth, along with methods for surface modification. Techniques available for surface analysis are reviewed and adhesion test methods are considered. This course is complementary to the course in adhesive bonding technology.
Adhesive Bonding Technology
The objective of the course is to provide a thorough grounding in the technology of adhesive bonding. The course starts with a review of the science of adhesion and adhesives and moves on to consider pre-treatment, different adhesive types and the design of bonded joints. Testing, durability and quality assurance are discussed and case studies in automobile, packaging and microelectronics presented.
