Welding, Brazing and Soldering
Solid-state welding (SSW) processes are those that produce coalescence of the faying surfaces at temperatures below the melting point of the base metal being joined without the addition of brazing or solder filler metal. This article discusses the fundamentals of welding and joining materials via the application of a nonmelting process. The specific processes usually associated with the nonmelting process are discussed.
