Include New Technological Advancements in Welding
By Sindo Kou
Guide with Exercises and Examples
Updated to include new technological
advancements in welding
- Uses illustrations and diagrams to
explain metallurgical phenomena
- Features exercises and examples
- An Instructor's Manual presenting
detailed solutions to all the problems in the book is available
from the Wiley editorial department.
"…well presented, comprehensive, and
accurate…a welcome addition to the bookshelves of metallurgists,
academics, postgraduate students, as well as non-specialized
engineers…" (JOM, February 26, 2004)
"The second edition, a valuable resource for
practitioners, researchers and students, contains more exercises and
offers a solution manual upon request..." (Materials Evaluation,
"For many years this review has been looking,
without success, for a book on the metallurgy of welding.
This...second edition fulfills all those needs and
expectations...all those who need a basic understanding of...welds
will greatly benefit...a valuable acquisition…highly recommended." (Choice,
Vol. 40, No. 7, March 2003)
