TWI hosted an exclusive webinar on 22 September, specifically aimed at the global companies associated with the shipbuilding and maritime industry.
During our 75 years of existence, we have been serving our Industrial Members in shipbuilding maintenance, repair, and R&D into future joining technologies and materials.
The webinar, which had 274 registrations and 134 attendees on the day, covered three areas of our non-commercially-sensitive research all presented by TWI experts in their fields:
- Composite material joining techniques: Pros and cons for using composite materials in ship design and manufacture, and methods for joining these materials – including composite to metal joining, presented by Dr Chris Worrall
- Distortion management: Discussion into TWI’s expertise in using numerical modelling to save costs and time associated with ship manufacture, presented by Dr Tyler London
- Friction stir welding of steel: The advantages of using friction welding for joining steel panels for maritime applications, including new robust tool designs and future development potential, presented by Dr Stephen Cater
The popular webinar garnered a lot of questions from the attendees and we are now planning to run a similar event again next year. We will let you know more details in due course, but in the meantime you can find out about our upcoming events here.
