From micro-nano devices such as chips to large structures such as aircraft carriers, the application of advanced welding technologies is indispensable. Welding is a process of interaction between a specific heat source and a specific material system, involving a series of complex thermal and mechanical phenomena, such as heat and mass transfer, fluid flow, electromagnetic action, melting, solidification, microstructure evolution, plastic deformation and so on. The deep understanding of the welding physical mechanism is helpful to optimize welding process, control welding quality and improve welding efficiency. Through the modelling and simulation of welding processes, the product development cycle is significantly shortened, the production cost is reduced, the welding quality is greatly improved, and the safety and reliability of the welding structure is guaranteed. The application of new materials and new technologies also continuously put forward new requirements for the new welding approaches, mechanisms and technologies. Research is actively being carried out across the world to clarify the mechanisms of welding processes scientifically, and to develop more advanced welding processes. However, challenges still exist, and further work is always needed.
This special issue aims to collect the recent discovery in welding physical mechanism, both from experimental characterization and numerical modelling. Topics covered in this Special Issue include but are not limited to: new discovery in traditional welding process, physical mechanism of novel welding process, novel welding materials and structures design, state-of-the-art scientific developments in welding metallurgy, material weldability, and the evaluation of welding joints.
This special issue endeavours to share recent advances and provide future insights in this crucial area, help researchers to better follow the newest research progress.
