Mechanical engineering

The aim of this book is to provide comprehensive knowledge about the vital field of fabrication including welding, brazing, soldering, adhesive bonding, surfacing, metal spraying and thermal cutting. Apart from giving a survey of all the Welding and Allied Processes, it describes in detail the industrially important welding processes including arc welding, gas welding, resistance welding, solid state welding, electron beam welding and laser welding. The role of automation and robotic welding is also detailed and guidelines are provided for making selection of a process to weld a particular material. It also gives information regarding fabrication under specific conditions like underwater welding, welding in snow, welding under windy conditions and welding in space. Economics of welding and safety in welding are also dealt with at length. Apart from the normal description of welding processes and procedures, solved numerical problems is a unique feature of this book. Indian Standards on Welding are also listed for reference in actual fabrication. The book will be useful for not only the B. Tech. and Postgraduate Students and Research Scholars but also for the Practicing Engineers.
