Resistance Welding, Solid State Welding and Allied Joining Process

From the Chair

Our expert members share leading-edge research and technology on high quality and reliable solutions, including friction-based processes, applicable to multi-material joining in modern structures and industry sectors.

Terms of reference

Commission III provides a unique forum for open discussion, where highly-competent international experts exchange scientific and technical information and transfer knowledge about resistance welding, solid state welding and allied joining processes. In recent years, topics have included joining of dissimilar thin sheet materials, joining in automotive industries, computer simulation of joining processes and friction stir welding, including both modelling and weldability. The Working Unit also assists in the formulation and preparation of new International Standards, with a view to encouraging and supporting a safe, healthy and environment-friendly world.
