Numerical Analysis of Weldability

With the 11th International Seminar „Numerical Analysis of Weldability", a tradition of successful meetings will be continued. Since the first of these events in 1991, this seminar series has developed to be a world leading conference in the growing field of the development of methods for predicting the microstructure and properties of welds. It is both, of practical importance and academic interest and it supports the philosophy of computer modelling, which helps to optimise welding processes and consumables as well as the service behaviour of welded components. Leading experts in this field attend the seminar and present their latest results in the calm atmosphere of an ancient castle.

The seminar is organized by the Institute for Materials Science and Welding (IWS) at Graz University of Technology (TU Graz) in Austria.

For more details please visit our conference website:

The following items (among others) of development and application of numerical analysis shall be discussed:

  • Arc Welding, Melt Pool and Solidification
  • Microstructural Modelling in Weld Metal and Heat Affected Zone
  • Microstructure and Mechanical Properties
  • Influence of Post Weld Heat Treatment
  • Cracking Phenomena
  • Residual Stresses and Distortion
  • Service Behaviour of Welded Structures
  • Hydrogen Effects
  • Laser and Electron Beam Welding
  • Solid State and Friction Stir Welding
  • Special Welding Processes
  • Modelling Tools and Computer Programs
