The monograph details aspects of welding technology and provides an insight into
metallurgical processes and their effects on properties of welded joints for a wide range
of alloys, including advanced alloys and composites. It is intended for industrial
engineers and designers of welded structures, research staff, professors and graduate

Chapter 1. Introduction and a general classification of the alloys.
Chapter 2. Discussion of the mechanical and chemical processes of the pre-welding
surface preparation techniques.
Chapter 3. Arc welding of aluminum-based alloys.
Chapter 4. Mechanical properties of welded joints.
Chapter 5. Arc welding of magnesium-based alloys. In these three chapters the
metallurgical processes and formation of joints during welding of Al and Mg based
alloys is discussed in detail. Special attention is given to welding of alloys containing
Beryllium and Lithium, and to welding of dissimilar alloys, i.e. metals based on the
same base metal but with different alloying components - topics rarely addressed in
other publications.
Chapter 6. Application of polymer coatings for reducing stress concentration, increasing
fatigue strength and extending the service life of welded joints.
Chapter 7. Explanation of advanced techniques of welding composite materials and
thermal processes during this welding.
Chapter 8. Discussion of the complex technology of assembly and welding performed
on microprocessor-based systems as well as the welding equipment and accessories
for automated quality welding. Included are recommendations for organization of
production and design of welded joints of aluminum and magnesium alloys.
Chapter 9. Quality control.
Chapter 10. Accident prevention.
