ASM-72095G-2015 Control of Microstructures and Properties in Steel Arc Welds


Control of Microstructures and Properties in Steel Arc Welds provides an overview of the most recent developments in welding metallurgy. Topics discussed include common welding processes, the thermal cycle during welding, defects that may occur during the welding process, the metallurgy of the material, metallurgical processes in the heat-affected zone and the fused metal, and the relationship between microstructures and mechanical properties. The book's final chapter presents examples of welded joints, illustrating how modern theories are capable of predicting the microstructure and properties of these joints. This book is an excellent resource for welding engineers, metallurgists, materials scientists, and others interested in the subject.


  • Summarizes the current knowledge of welding metallurgy to help readers understand the role of different factors for developing microstructures in welded joints
  • Provides a comprehensive discussion of the welding process so that readers can refine the capabilities of their techniques
  • Describes modern steel processes to facilitate discussions about base materials with suppliers
  • Discusses different welding procedures to demonstrate the benefit of analyzing welding procedures in advance
  • Lavishly illustrated with line drawings, black & white photographs, and color plates
