After closely monitoring the current developments with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), ASNE has decided to postpone
the Advanced Machinery Technology Symposium (AMTS) that was originally scheduled to be held on April 1-2 in Philadelphia.
Out of an abundance of caution and concern for everyone's safety and military/industry implementing travel restrictions, we were
left with no choice other than to postpone AMTS. The new dates for AMTS are June 4-5, 2020.
All attendee registrations, sponsorships and table tops will be transferred to the new dates, June 4-5. Email
ASNE-Events@navalengineers.org with any questions, feedback or special accommodations.
Please note that this
decision was not made lightly, but we look forward to bringing everyone together in June. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Reducing Shipbuilding and Ship Repair Costs Through the Proper Use of Welding Engineering
Welding engineering is often underutilized during ship construction, leading to inefficiencies, production errors and increased life cycle costs.
Navy Vessels are enormous structures that house large complex weapons, propulsion systems, and personnel dedicated to the defense of our nation.
Due to their extensive size, welding is a critical process in the production of these massive structures.
Properly engineering welds is an interdisciplinary process that must incorporate many different engineering disciplines. Knowledge of chemistry,
material science, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, manufacturing optimization and mechanics, along with their interaction, are all critical
in order to have a complete understanding of the materials joining process. This knowledge then must be integrated into welding design, materials selection,
welding processing, and testing plans to ensure the implemented welds perform to their desired specification. Increased utilization of proper welding
engineering concepts can increase productivity, reduce bottle necks, and prevent welding failures that drive up shipbuilding and ship maintenance costs.
