Resistance Welding: Fundamentals and Applications by Hong-Yan Zhang
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The development and introduction of new advanced materials has posed a serious welding challenge. Primarily based on experience and being as much an art as a science, the traditional wisdom for spot welding mild steels cannot be directly applied to new materials such as high strength steels and aluminum alloys. This book builds a solid foundation that will allow readers to deal with a variety of problems in resistance and other welding processes. In addition to an in-depth treatment of the fundamentals of resistance welding, it thoroughly examines its application and summarizes state-of-the-art research results and recent developments in resistance welding. Zhang; Hongyan The University of Toledo, Toledo, Ohio, USA,Senkara; Jacek Warsaw University of Technology, Warsaw, Poland,
