Yang-150x1501EWI principal engineer in modeling and simulation Yu-Ping Yang was recently published in Materials and Design.

In the November 2015 issue, Effect of humidity on porosity, microstructure, and fatigue strength of A7N01S-T5 aluminum alloy welded joints in high-speed trains, the authors addressed humidity and its impact on the quality of welded joints for high-speed trains. Welded joints made of A7N01S-T5 aluminum alloy were fabricated under five relative environmental humidity conditions: 50%, 60%, 70%, 80%, and 90%. Read the article to find out what these researchers determined to be the critical humidity level for welding joints in high humidity environment.

The article was co-authored by colleagues from the School of Materials Science and Engineering, Southwest Jiaotong University, Chengdu, China and CSR Qingdao Sifang Co. Ltd, Qingdao, China

The article is available for purchase from Science Direct.  EWI Members may request a copy of the article by contacting the EWI Research Library through the Members Only Login.
