A practical 'how to do it' book written with the design and welding interface in mind. It informs designers not only of what they should know about welding but also, and most importantly, sets out the information the designer should give to the welding engineer or fabrication superintendent so that the designer's aims can be achieved, in terms of engineering performance, safety, reliability, cost and appearance.
