provides a basic understanding of the nature of metals and the properties affecting weldability
Welding involves various metallurgical phenomena, including melting, freezing, diffusion, precipitation, thermal strains, and shrinkage. If disregarded or misunderstood, these effects can lead to cracking, porosity, or welds with poor properties. This course builds on the elementary principles described in Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgist to provide a basic understanding of the nature of metals and the properties affecting weldability.
