In its pursuit to become a world class institution in the field of welding and joining of metals, the Welding Research Institute (WRI), BHEL Tiruchi, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Joining and Welding Research Institute (JWRI), Osaka University, Japan.

R. Easwaran, General Manager, WRI & Labs, and Prof. Manabu Tanaka of JWRI exchanged the MoU documents on Thursday in the presence of A.V. Krishnan, Executive Director, BHEL-Tiruchi, and other senior executives.

Consultancy

As various core industries, including space, power, automobile, ship building, railways and strategic sectors invariably depend on the welding science for improving productivity, quality and services, the WRI offers consultancy enabling the manufacturing industries to bring in low cost automation and process control, Mr. Krishnan said.

Mutual benefit

The JWRI’s fundamental research and WRI’s expertise in applied research will be of mutual benefit leading to advanced research in the science of welding, Prof. Manabu Tanaka added.

Subsequently, professors of JWRI conducted an international seminar that had the participation of engineers of BHEL and students of BHEL – PSG programme.

Research

Presentations on ‘Plasma Diagnostics and Simulation of Welding Arcs’ by Prof. Manabu Tanaka, on ‘Time Resolved X Ray Diffraction analysis of phase transformation of steel weld’ by Prof. Hidenori Terasaki, and on ‘Macro and Micro plasticity analysis for fatigue life assessment of steel’ by Prof. Seiichiro Tsutsumi of JWRI exposed participants to the depth of research works at JWRI.
