Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Available in full-color, the fifth edition of Welding: Principles and Applications features more tight shots of actual welds to speed beginners to an understanding of a variety of different welding processes used today. Moving quickly from basic concepts to the study of today's most complex welding technologies, each section begins by introducing readers to the materials, equipment, setup procedures, and critical safety information they need to know to successfully execute a specific process. Remaining chapters in the section zero in on individual welding tasks and must-know techniques. Comprehensive coverage spans from specific welding processes to discussion of related topics, including welding metallurgy, metal fabrication, weld testing and inspection, joint design, and job costing. Objectives, key terms, review questions, lab experiments, and practice exercises in every chapter are also included to focus attention on information and skills required for success as a professional welder.

Book News Annotation:

Moving from basic concepts to complex welding technologies, this text for beginning welding students covers specific welding processes and related topics such as welding metallurgy, metal fabrication, weld testing, joint design, and job costing. Learning features include objectives, key terms, review questions, and lab experiments. This fifth edition features more photos of actual welds, including photos taken from the left-handed perspective for left-handed students.

Synopsis:

This all-encompassing guide covers all aspects of welding, as progressively guiding them from the absolute basics to AWS Certified Welder Test preparation. Experiments and practices are designed to familiarize the student with a wide range of machine settings, production of quality welds, while minimizing wasted stock and nonskilled work such as grinding and finishing.Based on standards established by the American Welding Society, the student learns to develop industry-acceptable practices for professional application.

This is an excellent book. Unfortunately I do not have the priviledge of owning my own copy; however, when my friend is not using his copy at school, I use it to learn on my own.
