Joining and Surface Modification Processes

Development of advanced joining process is a main objective of research. It involves both advanced surface modification technology and advanced joining process for the bulk materials. Thermal spraying, cold spray and aero-sol deposition are the main in the surface modification process for the materials. A common feature in these three processes is a thick coating formation with Particles Deposition. Coating formation mechanism in the PD process is the current interest. Friction Stir Welding, on the other hand, is the main in the bulk joining. Non melting plastic flowing process instead of regular fusion welding should have a inifinite possibility in the future welding or joining process field. Joining in dissimilar metals by friction stirring is the main interest in this theme.
