Welding Technology Fundamentals by W.A & K.E. Bowditch

This book covers the equipment and techniques associated with the welding and cutting processes most widely used in industry today. These processes include: oxyfuel gas welding and cutting, shield metal arc welding, gas metal arc welding, flux cored arc welding, gas tungsten arc welding, and resistance welding. Technical information regarding weld inspection and testing, welder qualification, drawing interpretation, and welding symbols is also included. The text is organized into eight sections, which can be studied independently or in sequence. Written in easy-to-understand form, this text is extensively illustrated and includes many tables and charts for selecting the variables required to make a good weld.
