LOCATION: SITE G0103,
This week’s talk will be on Welding Engineering. Mick Pates, the vice chair of the Ottawa Chapter of the Canadian Welding Association will talk about “Weld Failures, Almost Failures and Repair Solutions in Selected Projects”. He is a Certified International Welding Engineer and part of his talk focuses on certain projects and products that he has been involved in, ranging from ships, offshore structures and power plants.
You can find the abstract below. This talk will take about 40 minutes and will be followed by a friendly Question and Answer session. Refreshments will be provided. We hope to see you there!
Weld Failures, “Almost Failures” and Repair Solutions in Selected Projects
The presentation will begin by illustrating the breadth of the metallurgical/joining world and will then focus on certain projects and products that the author has been involved in, ranging from ships, offshore structures and power plant. Since welding of materials can be problematic if not done correctly, the presentation will also focus on some examples of failure and “almost failure”.
The range of materials covered will touch on HSLA steels, quenched and tempered steels, austenitic and duplex stainless steels among others.
