About this Symposium
Meeting 2023 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition
Symposium Advanced Joining Technologies for Automotive Lightweight Structures
Sponsorship TMS Materials Processing and Manufacturing Division
TMS: Shaping and Forming Committee
Organizer(s) Yan Huang, Brunel University London
Carla Barbatti, Constellium
Scope The symposium aims to bring about an intensive exchange of fundamental understanding and technological advances of automotive lightweight structure joining solutions, among worldwide academics, research scientists and expert automotive engineers, with focus on aluminum alloys and their joints with steel and polymers.Papers that describe physical experiments, joint design, characterization and assessment, and process simulation and optimization on the following key joining technologies are welcome:

• Solid state joining methods - self-piercing riveting (SPR), laser brazing, ultrasonic spot welding and magnetic pulse welding (MPW), etc.
• Fusion welding and resistance welding- laser beam welding (LBW), electron beam welding (EBW), Cold metal transfer (CMT) welding, resistance spot welding, etc.
• Hybrid joining methods and adhesive bonding.

Also welcome are all aspects of research, development and applications relating to the joining of automotive lightweight structures
s will be covered.
