Whereas most books on welding serve as practical, low-level technical guides, Principles of Welding offers the first comprehensive, college-level treatment of the subject. Complete, in one self-contained volume, it describes the chemistry and physics of welding along with welding processes and welding metallurgy. The underlying principles are covered in-depth and in clear and straightforward terms, making this an excellent resource for experienced engineers and students alike.
