This book is intended, like its predecessor (The metallurgy of welding, brazing and soldering), to provide a textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students concerned with welding, and for candidates taking the Welding Institute examinations. At the same time, it may prove useful to practising engineers, metallurgists and welding engineers in that it offers a resume of information on welding metallurgy together with some material on the engineering problems associated with welding such as reliability and risk analysis. In certain areas there have been developments that necessitated complete re-writing of the previous text. Thanks to the author's colleagues in Study Group 212 of the International Institute of Welding, understanding of mass flow in fusion welding has been radically transformed. Knowledge of the metallurgy of carbon and ferritic alloy steel, as applied to welding, has continued to advance at a rapid pace, while the literature on fracture mechanics accumulates at an even greater rate. In other areas, the welding of non-ferrous metals for example, there is little change to report over the last decade, and the original text of the book is only slightly modified. In those fields where there has been significant advance, the subject has become more quantitative and the standard of math ematics required for a proper understanding has been raised.

The new edition of this standard textbook follows its predecessors in providing comprehensive coverage of the key materials and processes for undergraduate and graduate students of metallurgy, as well as those attending specialist welding courses. It is also a source of reference for engineers and metallurgists concerned with joining processes. The text has been revised throughout, and a new chapter has been included dealing with metal/ceramic joining and microwelding. is also increased coverage of the development of steelmaking techniques that affect weldability. "Metallurgy of Welding" covers the joining of metals, both to other metals and to non-metals including ceramics and glasses. The joining processes covered include soldering, brazing, solid-phase welding and fusion welding. The fusion welding of steel is covered in depth, and non-ferrous metals, glasses and ceramics are also considered. A chapter is also devoted to the topic of the service behaviour of weldments. This book should be of interest to senior undergraduate and graduate students and practising engineers in materials engineering and manufacturing production engineering.About the Author:
John Lancaster has had extensive industrial and academic experience in welding metallurgy. He worked at the APV Company on the welding of non-ferrous metals and stainless steel, and later with M.W. Kellog where he was concerned with the fabrication of refinery and petrochemical plant in carbon and low alloy steel. He was Visiting Professor at Ashton University from 1971 to 1976, and in 1980 was appointed Guest Professor at the University of Tientsin, China.
