Jerry Gould, EWI Technical Fellow for Resistance and Solid-state Welding, will be a featured speaker this month at the 6th Annual Global Automotive Lightweight Materials (GALM) Summit in Detroit. His presentation, Joining As An Enabling Technology For the Manufacture of New Generation Lightweight Automotive Structures, will cover the following:
- Technical challenges in welding of new generation materials for vehicle construction
- Capable processes for dissimilar materials joining
- Methods of assessing joint structural performance
- Process instrumentation and strategies for quality assurance
Jerry has been on the senior technical staff at EWI since 1985. His major area of expertise is resistance spot welding of sheet steels. His research has focused on all aspects of resistance and friction based technologies, with particular interest in application to lightweight materials structures. Jerry is also a member of the LIFT (Lightweight Innovations for Tomorrow) technical leadership team, and currently serves as LIFT’s Pillar Leader for Joining and Assembly.
