The new Volume 1, 10th Edition of the Welding Handbook presents an overview of the latest research and engineering developments in the field of welding and cutting science and technology.
The 17 chapters in this volume cover the fundamentals of welding, cutting, joining, and allied processes: metallurgy, the physics of welding and cutting, heat flow in welding, residual stress and distortion, and many other topics.
More than 700 drawings, schematics, and photographs illustrate the text. Approximately 170 tables provide categorized or comparative information. Explanatory information and sources are identified and referenced in footnotes.
The Handbook is a voluntary effort by the members of the American Welding Society Welding Handbook Committee, the Welding Handbook Volume 1 Committee, and the Chapter Committees.
