    Structures and Infrastructure Technical Group Meeting: Structural Steelwork - Specifying the Future

    2021 will see changes to the steelwork specifications for both buildings and bridges in the UK. This event aims to review the new specifications with presentations from those involved in drafting specifications and those who use them. It is expected that attendees will take the opportunity to discuss issues and interpretations with the benefit of those present.

    All are welcome to attend and the format is of a series of presentations from industrial specialists with the intention of stimulating discussion of the topics presented.

    This is a member only event for Members and friends of the London Branch of The Welding Institute. All members are welcome to attend. This meeting will consist of the following presentations by Branch members;

    Overcasting - An Innovative Method of Joining, by Alireza Valizadeh

    Alireza Valizadeh will talk about the Overcasting process in which parts are bonded to each other during the casting process rather than it being the last stage a manufacturing. This removes the welding stage from the production process with consequent cost savings. The talk will address the process, its advantages, limitations and applications.

    Centreline Cracking in Steel Plate Fabrication, by Alan Denney

    Alan Denney will talk about centreline segregation cracking in steel plates based on project experience. The talk addresses: the occurrence of segregation, the effect on weldability of that zone in the material, the means of avoidance and guidance and code requirements.

    Alternative Energy Initiatives in the UK - A Taster, by Michael Lawrence

    Michael Lawrence will talk briefly about the wider picture of reduction of GHG (Green House Gases), some of the big industrial initiatives going on in the UK and also touch on some of the potential technical problems for wind, carbon capture and storage and hydrogen production and distribution.

    Continuing Professional Development (CPD): Attending this event supports your professional development.  You can claim 2 CPD points per hour for this event.  As a member of the Welding Institute you can record your CPD activity online from your membership portal.

    NDT and Condition Monitoring Technical Group: Enhancing the Inspection Process using Advanced NDT Methods

    In recent years there have been significant developments in technology which allow considerably increased performance of NDT methods, in terms of both the ability to detect imperfections and of efficiency of the inspection process. This has largely been enabled by the application of digital technology. While these developments are familiar to NDT professionals, it is not necessarily the case that those responsible for specifying the inspections to be used during the fabrication process of for ensuring fabrication quality are up to speed with the benefits that these advancements allow.

    The aim of this meeting is to present the benefits of a variety of advanced NDT systems and methods and how they may be used to improve the efficiency of inspections both during fabrication and in-service. It is aimed at welding engineers, those involved in ensuring fabrication quality, project engineers responsible for specifying NDT requirements and maintenance engineers. 

    All are welcome to attend and the format is of a series of presentations from industrial specialists with the intention of stimulating discussion of the topics presented.
