Welding Metallurgy and Weldability of Stainless Steels

Welding Metallurgy and Weldability of Stainless Steels

This book describes the fundamental metallurgical principles that control microstructure and properties of welded stainless steels. It also serves as a practical how to guide that allows engineers to select the proper alloys, filler metals, heat treatments, and welding conditions... read full description below.

Description of this Book

Welding Metallurgy and Weldability of Stainless Steels, the first book in over twenty years to address welding metallurgy and weldability issues associated with stainless steel, offers the most up-to-date and comprehensive treatment of these topics currently available. The authors emphasize fundamental metallurgical principles governing microstructure evolution and property development of stainless steels, including martensistic, ferric, austenitic, duplex, and precipitation hardening grades. They present a logical and well-organized look at the history, evolution, and primary uses of each stainless steel, including detailed descriptions of the associated weldability issues.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review ...offers a solid and detailed coverage of welding with stainless steels. (E-STREAMS, August 2006) ...an exciting metallurgy book...that is difficult to put down...the authors have performed an excellent piece of work in developing this book. (Materials and Manufacturing Processes, February 2006) ...a delight to read...has a wealth of information and written in a concise, informative manner... (MRS Bulletin, January 2006) ...an authoritative resource for both students and professionals that serves as a handy reference...essential. (CHOICE, December 2005) ...information is not something that can be easily found in most metallurgical reference books...extremely useful for the selection or application of stainless steels. (Journal of Metals Online, July 21, 2005) ...an up-to-date textbook that will surely become a respected volume for years to come. (Welding Journal, September 2005)
