The automotive industry can be considered one of the most important industries in this world. The sector is responsible for the transportation and logistics of humans and goods across the globe. In the previous decades, the automotive sector took over the railway industry in the US in both sectors of logistics and transportation. The sector has been booming ever since. Initially, a car was considered a luxury and has become a necessity. Recent history was really focused on the automotive industry being sustainable, but rather just a boom of cars. But we have come to realize now that there is a dire need to make the automobile more efficient in terms of fuel so that the car consumes less fuel and emits fewer gases. The automotive industry is keenly interested in figuring out ways and inventing new materials which provide the same strength to the vehicle but at a lower overall weight. This thesis discusses the brazing procedure for brazing joining of aluminum alloys to low carbon zinc-coated steel with the filler material being zinc. The experiment conducted reveals some results about the strength of the brazed joint so that the automotive industry can replace all steel to maybe brazed portions of steel with aluminum for weight reduction. The methodology discusses the experiments in detail.
