Applied Welding Engineering: Processes, Codes and Standards, Third Edition, provides expert advice on how to comply with international codes and work them into "day-to-day" design, construction and inspection. This new edition covers advances in automation and robotic welding in advanced manufacturing, the applications of friction stir welding, and standards and codes. The science of metallurgy, including Alloys, Physical Metallurgy, Structure of Materials, Non-Ferrous Materials, Mechanical Properties and Testing of Metals and Heal Treatment of Steels is also considered, as are Welding Metallurgy, Welding Processes, Nondestructive Testing and Codes and Standards. Case studies bridge the gap between theory and the world of welding engineering. Other topics cover Mechanical Properties and Testing of Metals, Heat Treatment of Steels, Effect of Heat on Material During Welding, Stresses, Shrinkage and Distortion in Welding, Welding, Corrosion Resistant Alloys-Stainless Steel, Welding Defects and Inspection, Codes, Specifications and Standards.

Key Features

  • Includes the very latest on automation and robotic welding in advanced manufacturing environments
  • Explains how to weld a range of common metals, also including technical instructions
  • Provides coverage of international codes and standards relevant to welding
  • Addresses a wide range of practical welding themes, including stresses and distortion, corrosion, weld defects and nondestructive testing


Researchers, students and practitioners working in fields related to welding technology
