    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    Electrical contact resistance is of critical importance in resistance welding. In this article, the contact resistance is experimentally investigated for welding mild steel, stainless steel, and aluminum to themselves. A parametric study was carried out on a Gleeble® machine, investigating the influence on the contact resistance of interface normal pressure, temperature, and base metal.
