Build Your Welding Library: The Latest Welding Book Releases

Just as welders have to update their skills to stay fresh and ahead of the competition, welding libraries should always be stocked with the latest welding books out on the market. Check out what has been updated, newly released, and some welding books that are coming soon.

Books below have been released/updated within the last 90 days except for the books in the Coming Soon category.


Resistance Welding: Fundamentals and Applications, Second Edition [Hardcover]


‚ÄúDrawing on state-of-the-art research results, Resistance Welding: Fundamentals and Applications, Second Edition systematically presents fundamental aspects of important processes in resistance welding and discusses their implications on real-world welding applications. This updated edition describes progress made in resistance welding research and practice since the publication of the first edition.‚Ä̬†


Changes made to the Second Edition (publisher’s description):

  • Significant addition of the metallurgical aspects of materials involved in resistance welding, such as steels, aluminum and magnesium alloys, zinc, and copper
  • Electric current waveforms commonly used in resistance welding, including single-phase AC, single-phase DC, three-phase DC, and MFDC
  • Magnesium welding in terms of cracking and expulsion
  • The effect of individual welding parameters
  • 2-D and 3-D lobe diagrams
  • New materials for the ultrasonic evaluation of welds, including A-scan, B-scan, and in-line A-scan

Welding Deformation and Residual Stress Prevention

‚ÄúGenerally, welding produces welding deformation and residual stress in the products, which influences the quality and performance of the products. Although many engineers and researchers have made great effort how to control these incidents, they have still remained unresolved. Welding Deformation and Residual Stress Prevention provides a unique computational approach to the prediction of the effects of deformation and residual stress on materials. The goal is to provide engineers and designers with the ability to create their own computational system for predicting and possibly avoiding the problem altogether.‚ÄĚ
