Welding plays an important role in modern production methods, and has made possible the construction of plants, equipment and structures unattainable by other known methods. It is almost impossible to make a product like automobile, aircraft, etc., without cast component. This book will serve as a bridge between the study of the processes and their applications in production industries.

Theory and practice are blended and explained so that the reader gets holistic approach to welding. First, basic processes are discussed, followed by the special processes and design, testing, weldability of systems are discussed at the end.
