Joining Dissimilar Metals With Transition Materials 760714

Galvanic corrosion and mechanical properties are major design considerations for bimetallic assemblies. Galvanic corrosion can lead to rapid degradation while welding of dissimilar metals such as steel and aluminum can lead to reduced structural stability. This paper describes a new concept in joining dissimilar metals involving the use of transition materials. The clad transition materials is composed of the dissimilar metals to be joined and effectively reduces the corrosion and mechanical problems associated with the system. Results of galvanic corrosion field tests and welding studies for transition materials are presented and several examples of automotive applications are cited.
