Abstract
The contemporary construction industry is evolving with a rapid pace and is pushing technological boundaries. Together with that progress new requirements on joints and joining techniques are imposed. This paper describes our research concerning an advanced joining technique, the Magnetic Pulse Welding process (MPW). The first part of this article briefly describes the MPW process and summarizes the differences with respect to conservative welding techniques. Secondly an analytical model of the process will be investigated on accuracy. This model was developed by the manufacturer of the MPW machine used at the Belgian Welding Institute. Further a description is given of the methods which are used to investigate the experimental joints. After describing the recently performed experiments, finally an overview will be given depicting the work that will be carried out during the rest of this master thesis.
