MS05 (Joining) | 2021

Innovative Joining by Forming Technologies

Coordinator: Prof. Gianluca Buffa

Co-Organisers: Prof. Marion Merklein,  Prof. Peter Groche

Description: The main topics of the minisymposium are: mechanical fastening operations (clinching, riveting and so on); friction welding; friction stir welding and friction stir spot welding; hybrid joining processes; innovative joining processes (also using adhesives) including forming or pre-forming of the materials to be joined; computational methods for joining simulation of processes; applications of inverse analysis to material characterization in joining conditions; part integrity (prediction of residual stresses, distortions ecc); innovative measurement methods and devices to detect relevant variables in joining by forming (temperatures, pressures, vibrations, wear ….)
