Available in full-color, the fifth edition of Welding: Principles and Applications features more tight shots of actual welds to speed beginners to an understanding of a variety of different welding processes used today. Moving quickly from basic concepts to the study of today's most complex welding technologies, each section begins by introducing readers to the materials, equipment, setup procedures, and critical safety information they need to know to successfully execute a specific process. Remaining chapters in the section zero in on individual welding tasks and must-know techniques. Comprehensive coverage spans from specific welding processes to discussion of related topics, including welding metallurgy, metal fabrication, weld testing and inspection, joint design, and job costing. Objectives, key terms, review questions, lab experiments, and practice exercises in every chapter are also included to focus attention on information and skills required for success as a professional welder.


  • new coverage of metal-cored wires and self-shielding in flux cored arc welding and updated information on joint design, symbols, and fabrication reflects the latest trends
  • all-new "Applied Academics" sections provide opportunities to develop math, science, communication, and interpersonal skills as they relate to the welding field.
  • "Success Stories" profile real-life welders, capturing attention and motivating readers who may be considering welding as a career choice
  • boxed articles at the end of each chapter showcase real-life applications of the principles presented, maintaining reader interest while bridging the gap between theory and practice
  • lab practices are included in the book to guide users step-by-step as they learn to produce high-quality welds using different materials, material thicknesses, and positions
  • experiments provide direct routes to learning the parameters of specific welding processes, from equipment and setup procedures through actual welding techniques
  • notations appear beside key figures, signaling readers when procedures being described can be viewed in our welding video series to minimize the learning curve
  • stand-alone chapters provide maximum flexibility, enabling users to pick and choose topics for study based on their particular interests
