Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"…well presented, comprehensive, and accurate…a welcome addition to the bookshelves of metallurgists, academics, postgraduate students, as well as non-specialized engineers…" (JOM, February 26, 2004)

"The second edition, a valuable resource for practitioners, researchers and students, contains more exercises and offers a solution manual upon request..." (Materials Evaluation, February 2003)

"For many years this review has been looking, without success, for a book on the metallurgy of welding. This...second edition fulfills all those needs and expectations...all those who need a basic understanding of...welds will greatly benefit...a valuable acquisition…highly recommended." (Choice, Vol. 40, No. 7, March 2003)

From The Critics
In this new edition, Kou (science and engineering, U. of Wisconsin) incorporates extensive revisions and includes sharper photomicrographs and line drawings; integration of the phase diagram, thermal cycles, and kinetics with the microstructure to explain microstructural development and defect formation in welds; and additional exercise problems. Topics include introductory material (fusion welding processes, heat and fluid flow, chemical reactions, and residual stresses, distortion and fatigue), and the fusion, partially melted, and heat-affected zones. Illustrated with b&w images. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
