It is possible to weld materials as diverse as stainless steels, zirconium, titanium and uranium, but it is crucial to understand the chemical reactions likely in the surrounding welding atmosphere. This book describes all the metallurgical phenomena involved in different welding processes, from the most standard to the most modern, such as electron beam welding or high energy laser welding.
