Weld Integrity and Performance
Weld Integrity and Performance is a convenient reference and sourcebook for anyone involved in the application, fabrication, or assessment of welded structures. It provides detailed information on relevant topics including weld solidification, weldability testing, weld characterization, discontinuities and imperfections, cracking phenomena, inspection and evaluation techniques, fatigue and fracture control, fracture mechanics, fitness-for-service testing, repair welding, and weld corrosion. An entire section, the largest by far in the book, covers the basic metallurgy and engineering properties of weldments made from carbon and low-alloy steels, stainless steels, aluminum alloys, titanium alloys, nickel-base alloys, and refractory metals, including tantalum, niobium, molybdenum, and tungsten alloys. The book also provides insights into the origins of failure associated with different welding processes and includes an appendix with information on the weldability of common alloys (including cast irons) as well as process selection guidelines, recommended preheat and interpass temperatures and postweld heat treatments for pipe welds and pressure vessels, and qualification codes and standards.
