Welding Engineering an Introduction by David H. Phillips

welding engineering an introduction

Welding Engineering an Introduction is a unique handbook on the introduction of welding engineering. The author, David M. Phillips Wiley, primarily dedicated the book to welding engineers. Generally, the manual serves as guidelines to the welders, students, instructors, technicians, supervisors, and welding shoppers. The handbook explains the topics like welding processes, welding design consideration, welding metallurgy of metals, welding quality, welding engineering, welding and joining approaches, codes/standards, and safety measures.

Mainly the book is compiled from the class lectures. In simple words, it is an elaboration of the aspects of welding engineering. Besides this, it also reveals the basic and fundamental concepts.
