Final Report - WEL-AIR (Development of Short Distance WELding Concepts for AIRframes)

Project ID: 502832
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE

Abstract

This is the final report of the WEL-AIR project, which systematically investigated the basic mechanisms of hot tearing control, crack initiation and crack growth at the vicinity of the run-in and run-out of skin-stringer welds as well as short distance clip-skin welds.

The document initially states the project's background, motivation and objectives and then goes on to explain the experiments conducted. There is specific reference to the materials tested and the stress tests devised, followed by the results obtained. The report concludes with a brief assessment of the project's achievements and possible impacts in the industry.
