EWI is pleased to offer DISSIMILAR MATERIALS WELDABILITY CONCEPTS, an online seminar presented by EWI’s Alber Sadek on December 15, 2015, at 1:00pm. This webinar is free, and registration is open to the public.

Dissimilar metals welding is a technical joining solution used in many industrial sectors. There are many advantages to the process, including:

  • Minimizing costs of fabrication
  • Providing damage tolerance to the overall structure
  • Improving design by matching the correct material to the needed property or behavior
  • Using high performance materials only where they are absolutely required and can provide real benefit
  • Optimizing each section of the welded structure for its specific application

Joining of different metals and alloys with unknown material properties, however, presents a new set of challenges to manufacturers. This webinar will:

  • Demonstrate how weld microstructure can be enhanced when joining a component made of dissimilar materials
  • Identify how to control the mechanical properties of a welded joint
  • Provide guidelines for designing an effective dissimilar metal welding procedure

Alber Sadek is a Senior Engineer in EWI’s materials group, where he investigates the effects welding parameters, welding processes, and shielding gas composition on the microstructure and mechanical properties of different alloy weldments. His current work involves the selection of metals and alloys as they are applied in different industrial sectors, covering their physical properties, material characterization, weldability (similar/dissimilar alloys), corrosion, wear, fatigue, and creep properties.

There is no charge for DISSIMILAR MATERIALS WELDABILITY CONCEPTS, but registration is required by December 11, 2015. To sign up for the webinar, please click here. For additional information, visit
