Principles and Applications
Processes & Techniques as well as Metallurgy, Metal Fabrication,
Weld Testing & Inspection, Joint Design & Job Costing
By Larry Jeffus
- Sixth Edition
This newly updated sixth edition of Welding:
Principles and Applications features 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
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.
- New coverage of
metal-cored wires and self-shielding in flux cored arc welding and
updated information on joint design, symbols, and fabrication
reflects the latest trends
- All-new "Applied
Academics" sections provide opportunities to develop math,
science, communication, and interpersonal skills as they relate to
the welding field.
- "Success Stories"
profile real-life welders, capturing attention and motivating
readers who may be considering welding as a career choice
- Boxed articles at the
end of each chapter showcase real-life applications of the
principles presented, maintaining reader interest while bridging
the gap between theory and practice
- Lab practices are
included in the book to guide users step-by-step as they learn to
produce high-quality welds using different materials, material
thicknesses, and positions
- Experiments provide
direct routes to learning the parameters of specific welding
processes, from equipment and setup procedures through actual
- Notations appear beside
key figures, signaling readers when procedures being described can
be viewed in our welding video series to minimize the learning
- Stand-alone chapters
provide maximum flexibility, enabling users to pick and choose
topics for study based on their particular interests
- A companion Study
Guide/Lab Manual is also available, making it easy to gain
hands-on welding practice
