Solid State Welding Demo

Throughout the summer high school students in various camps will visit Ohio State’s College of Engineering to learn about the different engineering majors offered.  Today, a group of rising high school sophomores and juniors learned about Welding Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering.

Here, a Welding Engineering student uses a drill to weld an aluminum bit to a larger piece of aluminum. This use of friction to weld metals is a type of  “solid state welding.”
