Fundamentals of Joining

The joining technology is one of the key technologies of production processes on a manual or industrial scale. Hardly a product can do without it. The book “Fundamentals of joining technology – welding, brazing and adhesive bonding” is a good introduction to the subject.

Together with the supplementary exercises, the lecture has the objective to teach the fundamentals of firmly bonding joining. The lecture is divided into two parts:

The first half concentrates on the welding methods which are most widespread in trade and industry, such as arc, beam and resistance welding methods. Derived from functional principles, the application possibilities and limits are explained, and adhesive bonding and mechanical joining are also introduced as alternative methods.

After conclusion of the first half of the lecture, the students should be capable to select suitable joining methods for established joining tasks.

In the second half, basically the interactions during welding of steel are taught. This knowledge will be extended in the lecture Joining Technology II. Moreover, the topic of occupational safety is dealt with. Both subjects are strongly recommended for those students who only attend the first half, especially with regard to their future working life.

The welding methods which were introduced in the first half, will be extended by less wide-spread methods with special capabilities and, in addition, brazing technology will be taught. Lectures about mechanisation and automation and also about design and calculation of welded structures will give insight into the interactions between welding methods, design and manufacturing environment. In order to extend knowledge about these subjects, the lecture Joining Technology III is recommended.

After conclusion of the second half, the student knows the industrially relevant welding and joining methods and is capable to select and schedule the application of a suitable method for a joining task. The student, moreover, knows about the fundamental behaviour of the material steel during welding. The student has, moreover, gained basic knowledge of design and calculation of welded structures.


A registration via CAMPUS is necessary.

The lecture notes are available on the L2P-website according to the corresponding lecture "Welding and Joining".
