STW front cover

This special issue of STWJ commemorates the publication of over 1000 articles since the journal’s inception in 1996. Leading international researchers were asked to assess their subject area and speculate on future developments. The issue was published in Vol. 16, Issue 4 of 2011.

Articles include;


  • a critical review by R. Rai, A. De, H. Bhadeshia, and T. DebRoy examining aspects of FSW tools with particular emphasis on welding of difficult materials
  • a review of future challenges for numerical optimisation of FSW by C. Tutum and J. Hattel
  • a review of texture development in friction stir welds by R. Fonda and K. Knipling
  • and many more! 

A promotional page with information about the journal, free content and special offers is available in May and June.

The editorial by Stan David, Tarasankar DebRoy and Harry Bhadeshia is available to view online for free. 

Edited by S. David, T. DebRoy and H. K. D. H. Bhadeshia, Science and Technology of Welding and Joining is an international peer reviewed journal covering both the basic science and applied technology of welding and joining. Its comprehensive scope encompasses all welding and joining techniques (brazing, soldering, mechanical joining, etc.) and aspects such as characterization of heat sources, mathematical modelling of transport phenomena, weld pool solidification, phase transformations in weldments, microstructure-property relationships, welding processes, weld sensing, control and automation, neural network applications, and joining of advanced materials, including plastics and composites.
