: Book


Welding Fundamentals is designed to provide students with a strong understanding of the underlying theory and skills required for successful welding, with a strong emphasis on safety. It provides all of the information needed to help students develop proficiency with the most common welding processes (including GTAW, GMAW, FCAW, SMAW, and oxyfuel welding), thermal cutting, basic print reading and weld symbology, and joint design and fit up. The text also introduces students to weld inspection and testing.

  • Covers all of the key indicators for AWS SENSE Level-1 certification, so the book can be used in all courses leading to SENSE Level-1 certification.
  • The book is designed so that sections of the book can be taught in any order, making the book easily adaptable to any course.
  • The book is heavily illustrated with clear, well-lighted photos and engaging full-color illustrations to hold students' interest and help them learn.
