The Welding of Aluminium and Its Alloys


Year: 2002
Language: english
Author: Gene Mathers
Genre: Textbook
Publisher: Woodhead Publishing Limited
Format: PDF
Quality: eBook
Pages count: 243
Description:
The book provides a basic understanding of the metallurgical principles involved in how alloys achieve their strength and how welding can affect these properties. Author have included sections on parent metal storage and preparation prior to welding and have also described the more frequently encountered processes. There are recommendations on welding parameters that may be used as a starting point for the development of a viable welding procedure. Also included are what author hopes will be useful hints and tips to avoid some of the pitfalls of welding these sometimes problematic materials.
This book can be a very good guide for a manual for aluminium welding procedure in different cases.

Pls shift info from Additional info to Description, as it more or less gives some kind of book description. It would be preferable to make it more short and more laconic view as well.
Info given presently at Description is looks like disclimer and not interisting for anybody exсept the book producer.

Your corrected Description is too small now. I did not mean such small review when recommended you to be laconic)))
I took an info from book Preface and placed it above instead of you. Next time pls make it youself. Find some sentences at annotation or at preface which will reflect book content.
