Series: Woodhead Publishing Series in Welding and Other Joining Technologies

The Woodhead Publishing Series in Welding and Other Joining Technologies is a collection of professional reference books on recent advances in welding technology. The series provides comprehensive reviews on all the major technological developments in a broad range of welding techniques, procedures and joining technologies. The competitive advantage of the series is that it discusses the various problems that might be encountered, the advantages and disadvantages of the various processes and the importance of choosing the appropriate technology to fulfil a given requirement. Design recommendations and how they might be applied in good practice are also discussed as well as metallurgical phenomena, fatigue analysis, NDE and repair. The books in the series will be essential reading for metallurgists, practical welding engineers, materials scientists, welding inspectors, and all those involved in the study or practice of welding high-performance metals and other structural materials.

Most recent volume

Volume . Advances in Laser Materials Processing

Published: 20th September 2017 Editor: Jonathan Lawrence

Advances in Laser Materials Processing: Technology, Research and Application, Second Edition, provides a revised, updated and expanded overview of the area, covering fundamental theory, technology and methods, traditional and emerging applications and potential future directions.

The book begins with an overview of the technology and challenges to applying the technology in manufacturing. Parts Two thru Seven focus on essential techniques and process, including cutting, welding, annealing, hardening and peening, surface treatments, coating and materials deposition.

The final part of the book considers the mathematical modeling and control of laser processes. Throughout, chapters review the scientific theory underpinning applications, offer full appraisals of the processes described and review potential future trends.
