This study focuses on the opportunities and challenges of applying the static resistance welding process to a full scale upper shell fuselage demonstrator. An adapted resistance welding setup and process which produces high quality welds over the whole welding surface with a defined weld seam is described. The effects of scaling and the challenges that arise during the welding of the demonstrator are discussed. Approaches to solutions are presented to meet the required reliability of resistance welded joints in application.
