Description: This lecture gives a brief introduction into the basic fabrication methods for structural aluminium alloy materials with respect to machining, forming, joining and surface treatments as a necessary background for the design process; it describes the subject of welding structural aluminium alloys in order to understand the materials requirements which the designer has to take into account when designing load carrying welded aluminium structures. General materials engineering background is assumed.
