Practical, in-depth instruction for the selection of the materials incorporated in the joint, joint inspection, and the quality control for the final product. A valuable source for developing new welding processes or procedures for new materials.
An introduction to the most important industrial joining methods: welding, brazing, soldering, fastening, and adhesive bonding. It addresses metallurgical issues that must be understood during welding, and provides an overview of issues to consider when joining systems of materials that are the same, similar, or different.
Describes the weldability aspects of structural materials used in a wide variety of engineering structures. Describes weld failure mechanisms. Provides engineers and students with the information needed to understand the basic concepts of welding metallurgy.
