one of the most common fabrication processes that allows engineers to join
materials together. The process involves the use of by using high heat to melt
the parts together and allowing them to cool, causing fusion. A proper welding
process could produce joints that may have superior mechanical strength that
the base metal. However, to ensure that a weld could function as designed, it
is important that the quality of the welds be checked after the completion of
the welding process, and while this could be achieved by appointing a third
party qualified inspector, it is also important for an engineer to understand
how to make a simple judgement of whether there could be potential problems
associated with the welds as fabricated, bearing in mind that a poor weld that
was not detected by the qualified inspector could lead to catastrophic failure
and which could lead to fatalities.
presentation, Ir Dr. Lim will share his valuable experience on the common
defects that one could encounter when working with welded joint, and the
various techniques that one could apply to check the integrity of the

Lim graduated from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Hong
Kong. His research area was on Deformation Behaviour of Materials. He is
currently a director of Safety Accident and Failure Experts Limited which is a
company providing independent technical investigations to the engineering field
in Hong Kong, having prepared more than 3500 independent technical
investigation reports many of which are related to failure of mechanical
equipment in Hong Kong, China, South Korea, Japan, Thailand and Singapore, etc.
Ir Dr. Lim is currently also a technical assessor of HOKLAS as well as HKIAS
assessing Laboratories and Inspection Bodies providing testing and inspection
services on construction materials, including tests and inspection activities
related to welds.
