Welding: Principles and Practices 5th Edition by Edward Bohnart.
Welding: Principles and Practices, 5e, is both a revision and an expansion of the Theory and Practice of Arc Welding, which was first published in 1943. The previous editions have enjoyed success during the years as a major text used in the training of welders by industry and the schools.
This book is designed to be used as the principal text for welding training in career schools, community technical college systems, technical junior colleges, engineering schools, and secondary technical schools. It is also suitable for on-the-job training and apprenticeship programs. It can serve as a supplementary text for classes in building construction, metalworking, and industrial technology programs.
Welding: Principles and Practices, 5e, provides a course of instruction in welding, other joining processes, and cutting that will enable students to begin with the most elementary work and progressively study and practice each process until they are skilled. Both principles and practice are presented so that the student can combine the “why” and the “how” for complete understanding. The chapters have been arranged into sections to facilitate training programs with reduced contact time segments. Each section maintains the twofold approach of Welding Principles, in which students are introduced to fundamentals that will enable them to understand what is taking place in the application of the various processes, and Welding Practices, where they learn the necessary hands-on skills.
Welding: Principles and Practices, 5e, presents the fundamental theory of the practice in gas, arc, gas-shielded and self shielded processes, welding, brazing, soldering, and plastic welding processes. The various applications of these processes are covered such as manual, semiautomatic, mechanized, automatic, and robotic methods. Current industrial practices are cited with use of various national welding codes and standards. The content is based on the SENSE program of the American Welding Society along with other leading welding authorities.
Welding is an art, technology, and engineering science. It requires the skillful manipulation of the weld pool, a thorough knowledge of welding processes, and the characteristics of the type of material being used. Students can be assured of success if they are willing to spend the time required in actual practice work and the study of the principles presented in this text until they thoroughly understand their significance. Faithful adherence to this course of study will enable them to master the current industrial material joining and cutting processes thoroughly.
The Fifth Edition of Welding: Principles and Practices includes: Photos and Diagrams An exhaustive photo and art research program was launched to ensure that the latest edition of Welding: Principles and Practices, 5e, showcases the latest advances in technology, techniques, and equipment. As a result of this research, Welding: Principles and Practices, 5e, contains hundreds of colorful new photos and diagrams that accurately illustrate modern welding practices. In addition to the new images, many classic images—photos and diagrams that have been featured throughout several editions—have been updated to appear in four-color.
Videos To complement the visual updates to the main textbook and to provide even more learning opportunities for students, brief video clips have been added to the Online Learning Center at www.mhhe.com/welding. The videos cover a variety of topics including gas metal arc welding, shielded metal arc welding, and orbital welding. An icon appears in the textbook whenever video on a particular topic is available. The videos are embedded within the updated PowerPoint slides on the Instructor’s Side of the Online Learning Center, and students can watch them by accessing the Student’s Side of the Center.
Every chapter complies with current AWS SENSE Welding Process Certification and with the most current AWS Standards. The terminology is current so students know the most recent terms to use when they begin to practice. Additional information on many different topics including, safety, lead welding, arc wandering, gas metal arc braze welding, and more are also included in the text.
