Short description Welding Metallurgy by Sindo Kou has been used worldwide as a reference book for welding practitioners and researchers since it was published in 1987. It has also been used for teaching welding in universities in more than ten different countries. Significant progress has been made in the field of welding metallurgy in the past 13 years, and this Second Edition will be a most welcome addition to the literature. The premier reference for welding metallurgy, completely revised and expanded presents the fundamental aspects of fusion welding of engineering alloys. It examines the thermal, chemical, and mechanical aspects of welding and provides practical approaches to solving welding problems.
