JOIN THE SECOND BACK-TO-BASICS WEBINAR FROM THE WELDING AND JOINING PROCESSES TECHNICAL GROUP (TG2)

This second back-to-basics webinar will be looking at the three most important cracking mechanisms that may occur in C/Mn and low alloy steels:

  • hydrogen induced cold cracking
  • solidification cracking
  • lamellar tearing

The cause(s) of these cracking problems will be explained drawing on some of the metallurgical principles that were discussed in first back-to-basics: An Introduction to Steel Metallurgy*.

Importantly, the measures that can be taken to avoid or mitigate the cracking will also be covered.

* You do not need to have attended the first back-to-basics webinar to attend this one.


Who should attend?

  • those with little or no knowledge of welding technology
  • those just entering the welding industry
  • those wanting to gain an appreciation of the subject
  • engineers who feel the need for a refresher
  • anyone with an interest in welding

What is the format?
The webinars are informal with ample time for questions and will be around an hour in length, given by a highly qualified professional with extensive experience in the relevant subject.
