Low Heat Joining – Manufacture and Fatigue of Soldered Locally Strengthened Structures
The advantages of low heat joining techniques, such as low distortion and little influence on the local material properties due to the low introduced amount of heat, shall be made usable for the manufacture of high strength structures by increasing the process reliability. The dependency between the parameters of the joining process, the seam geometry, the type of solder, the load type und the fatigue life especially of soldered structure with local strengthening shall be examined to allow a calculative estimation of the part’s life.
