Recently Published: Ultrasonic impact treatment to improve stress corrosion cracking resistance of welded joints of aluminum alloy

August 2, 2016

Congratulations to EWI principal engineer Yu-Ping Yang who is a co-author of a recently published article in the Journal of Materials Engineering and Peformance.  Yu-Ping and colleagues from Southwest Jiaotong University in China addressed the significant problem of stress corrosion cracking of welded joints of 6005A-T6 aluminum alloy in high-speed trains.  In this study, ultrasonic impact treatment was applied successfully to control the residual stress of the welded joints.
