Metallurgy of Welding and Joining Self-Study Course

Self-Study | Product code: 24321C

Price: $1400.00 Member Price: $1200.00

Welding metallurgy is a complex subject because it requires knowledge of materials, welding processes, design, and inspection. Metallurgy of Welding and Joining provides an excellent review of welding processes, welding of materials ranging from carbon steel to specialized alloys, guidelines for designing weldments to facilitate welding, and testing and inspecting welds to meet performance requirements. To measure your retention of each lesson's materials and end-of -lesson test will be provided, in addition to an end of course examination.
