SAFEJOINT addresses the challenge of developing novel techniques for metal to metal and metal to composite joints
SAFEJOINT Final Conference
The SAFEJOINT project combined its final Conference with the ICEAF IV, 4th International Conference of Engineering Against Failure held on 24-26 June 2015 – Skiathos island, Greece. The scope of the Conference attracted interdisciplinary work dedicated to the design against and prevention of engineering failure. Presentations covered a number of different technological areas including Aeronautics, Construction, Automotive, Bioengineering, Recycling, etc.
SAFEJOINT had a dedicated session concerning joining of dissimilar materials, where the findings of the project were presented as well as the latest developments from around Europe and internationally, the progress and outcomes of the project and how the technologies developed are being exploited.
The aim of the SAFEJOINT session was to disseminate the knowledge generated from the SAFEJOINT project and encourage industry to adopt the techniques developed and keep industry markets engaged and informed on the project outcomes to ensure there is continuous awareness of the project activities, wide dissemination within industry and also feedback on the market uptake of the project outcomes.
The SAFEJOINT newsletters will produce 3 newsletters a year and these are available for download in a .pdf format.
The SAFEJOINT Industry Workshop took place in Athens, Greece on the 03-04 July 2014.
Topics covered include:
- Metal to composite joining
- Modelling of dissimilar joint
- NDE of dissimilar joints
- Environmental degradation of dissimilar joints
- Dissimilar metal joints
The successful workshop encouraged discussion on the industry perspective and input on the future direction of research in dissimilar material joining.
