International Journal of Materials and Product Technology (IJMPT)

Call for papers: Special Issue on: “Welding of Aluminium Alloys”

Guest Editors:
Dr. K. Srinivasa Rao, Andhra University, India
Dr. G. Madhusudan Reddy, Defence Metallurgical Research Laboratory, India.

Aluminium alloys are gaining importance day by day in all engineering applications in view of their excellent mechanical properties. Welding is an inevitable step in the fabrication of components made of aluminium alloys. Chemical and metallurgical changes that take place during welding affect the mechanical and corrosion behaviour of welds. Recently, new welding processes are being used to overcome some of the problems like heat affected zone softening, partially melted zone cracking and fusion zone cracking.

This special issue is intended to focus on the research related to the all problems during welding of any aluminium alloy. This will helps in finding the reasons and offering better solutions for weldability of aluminium alloys. We invite all the scientific and engineering community to present and discuss their research through this special issue of IJMPT. We therefore formally extend this call for high quality research papers related to the current state of the art and future trends in welding of aluminium alloys.

For more information, subject coverage, notes for intending authors, submission dates and contact information, please see the Journal Call for papers website.
