Recent advances in adhesion of dissimilar welded joints

Welding has traditionally been regarded as a craft rather than a technology manufacturing process. In the past, welding technology developments have been based mainly on metallurgical research, enabling a wide range of materials to be joined, adequate joint properties to be maintained, and the integrity of welded joints to be controlled. While further work is still required in the materials research area, in particular, to enable advanced materials to be joined effectively, much of the recent effort has been devoted to an improved understanding of the primary process.

The recent development in welding and dissimilar materials joining technologies has improved assembled components' integrity and performance and led to the development of advanced manufacturing techniques that provide extraordinary benefits such as increased productivity, component cost reduction, synergistic mixes of materials, unique joint properties, reliable assessments, and improved joint efficiency.

In this issue, the focus is directed to adhesives and nanocomposites, adhesive joints made with metallic, hybrid materials and composites, fatigue and fracture behavior of composite adhesive joints, as well as advanced welding techniques such as cold metal transfer (CMT), friction stir welding/processing with different nanoparticles, tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding process with friction stir processing (FSP), underwater welding, and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis of CMT and friction stir welding or processing. This issue covers all the welding and joining topics, including metallurgical characterization, mechanical properties, and performance in extreme environments. Technique development and metallurgical characterization are of interest, mainly related to the material science of welded joints. Review papers are also accepted, but topics of contributed review papers should first be discussed with the editors.
