The basic purpose of this text is to present welding and welding technology in such a manner that the beginning college student can understand the underlying theories of welding, apply these theories to the process,and then apply the process to teh fabrication of goods. The theories and principles of welding technology, while based on mathematics and science, are presented so that a scientific background is not mandatory although the student will learn to apply an amount of mathematics and science in welding technology. Key Features: The text follows the same basic format in all its five major sections. Each section is divided into specific technical units. The units for most of the sections is an introduction which presents the operating theories and principles, and the remaining units explain how to apply the theroy to the fabrication of goods. A set of questions to reinforce the information within the unit and suggested further readings are also included at the end of each unit. Where applicable each unit has sample projects or exercises that emphasize the manipulative aspects of welding technology. Many of the suggested activities are ideas to instructors for possible demonstrations. The text provides the basic information to explain the "how as well as the why" of the welding processes. The material contained in the introductory unit of sections I,II,III is technical in nature and could be omitted if the educational program is not technically oriented. Thus the text will appeal to the more general educational approach to the welding processes as well as to the technical. The last two sections are more general in nature than the first three section IV on special welding processes is an overview of many welding processes which are either too processes is an overview of many welding processes which are either too expensive, too new, or too hazardous to be included in a welding curriculum but with which welding students should be familier. The last section
