Welding: Principles and Applications 5th Edition

Larry Jeffus

  • Published
  • Previous Editions 1999, 1993, 1988
  • 944 Pages

Overview

Available in full-color, the fifth edition of Welding: Principles and Applications features more tight shots of actual welds to speed beginners to an understanding of a variety of different welding processes used today. Moving quickly from basic concepts to the study of today's most complex welding technologies, each section begins by introducing readers to the materials, equipment, setup procedures, and critical safety information they need to know to successfully execute a specific process. Remaining chapters in the section zero in on individual welding tasks and must-know techniques. Comprehensive coverage spans from specific welding processes to discussion of related topics, including welding metallurgy, metal fabrication, weld testing and inspection, joint design, and job costing. Objectives, key terms, review questions, lab experiments, and practice exercises in every chapter are also included to focus attention on information and skills required for success as a professional welder.

Larry Jeffus, Eastfield College (Emeritus)

Larry Jeffus is a welder with over 55 years of welding experience, and he has his own well-equipped welding shop. In his welding career he has passed many welding certification tests in a wide variety of processes, positions, and on many different material types and thicknesses. Larry has provided welding and professional consulting services locally, nationally, and internationally to major corporations, small businesses, government agencies, schools, colleges, and individuals. He is a Life Member of the American Welding Society. Larry Jeffus has over forty years experience as a dedicated classroom teacher and is the author of several Delmar Cengage Learning welding publications. Prior to retiring from teaching, Professor Jeffus taught at Eastfield College, part of the Dallas County Community College District. Since retiring from full-time teaching, he remains very active in the welding community, especially in the field of education. He serves on several welding program technical advisory committees and has visited high school, college, and technical campuses in more than forty states and four foreign countries. Professor Jeffus was selected as Outstanding Post-Secondary Technical Educator in the State of Texas by the Texas Technical Society. Professor Jeffus has served for 12 years as a board member on the Texas Workforce Investment Council in the Texas Governor's office where he works to develop a skilled workforce and bring economic development to the state. He served as a member of the Apprenticeship Project Leadership Team where he helped establish apprenticeship training programs for Texas, and he has made numerous trips to Washington lobbying for vocational and technical education. Larry Jeffus holds a Bachelor of Science Degree and has completed post graduate studies.
  • new coverage of metal-cored wires and self-shielding in flux cored arc welding and updated information on joint design, symbols, and fabrication reflects the latest trends
  • all-new "Applied Academics" sections provide opportunities to develop math, science, communication, and interpersonal skills as they relate to the welding field.
  • "Success Stories" profile real-life welders, capturing attention and motivating readers who may be considering welding as a career choice
  • boxed articles at the end of each chapter showcase real-life applications of the principles presented, maintaining reader interest while bridging the gap between theory and practice
  • lab practices are included in the book to guide users step-by-step as they learn to produce high-quality welds using different materials, material thicknesses, and positions
  • experiments provide direct routes to learning the parameters of specific welding processes, from equipment and setup procedures through actual welding techniques
  • notations appear beside key figures, signaling readers when procedures being described can be viewed in our welding video series to minimize the learning curve
  • stand-alone chapters provide maximum flexibility, enabling users to pick and choose topics for study based on their particular interests
  • a companion Study Guide/Lab Manual is also available, making it easy to gain hands-on welding practice
