A Practical Guide to Welding Solutions: Overcoming Technical and Material-Specific Issues by Robert W. Messler. As critically important as welding is to a wide spectrum of manufacturing, construction, and repair, it is not without its problems. Those dependent on welding know only too well how easy it is to find information on the host of available processes and on the essential metallurgy that can enable success, but how frustratingly difficult it can be to find guidance on solving problems that sooner or later arise with welding, welds, or weldments. Understanding how welding works in terms of various processes and the metallurgy is well treated in books, colleges, and continuing education. Far less well treated is why welding sometimes does not work as expected or needed, what problems can occur, and, most importantly, how to solve problems that do appear. What every practitioner of welding needs to know.
