Description / Abstract:

The definitive resource for understanding the welding metallurgy of stainless steels Welding Metallurgy and Weldability of Stainless Steels, the first book in over twenty years to address welding metallurgy and weldability issues associated with stainless steel, offers engineers, scientists, and students the most up-to-date and comprehensive treatment of these topics currently available. The authors emphasize fundamental metallurgical principles governing microstructure evolution and property development of stainless steels, including martensitic, ferritic, austenitic, duplex, and precipitation-hardening grades. They present a logical and well-organized look at the history, evolution, and primary uses of each stainless steel, including detailed descriptions of the associated weldability issues. Coverage includes the latest information on: Common stainless steel alloys and their composition Physical and welding metallurgy of different alloy systems Mechanical properties of welded stainless steels The technology and uses of "super" stainless steel alloys Dissimilar metal joints and weldability issues Methods for evaluating weldability Real-world solutions to weldability challenges In addition to describing the applications and limitations of stainless steels for welded construction, the text also addresses common failures in welded stainless steels associated with fabrication and service exposure, and how such failures may be avoided.
