Although metallurgy is a standard subject in general engineering, it doesnt provide the information that welding engineers need. This helpful chapter from the Welding Handbook, 9th Ed., Vol. 1, starts with coverage of physical metallurgy, serving as a solid refresher or a clear introduction. Reviews alloys, phase transformations, phase diagrams, effects of deformation and heat treatment, cold working, austenitization caused by welding, weldability of commercial alloys, and corrosion in welds and brazed or soldered joints. Impressive bibliography and supplementary reading list.
