In the first release of this Handbook the standard technical overview of the welding processes and necessary guidance to the major welding techniques were provided together with their applications. Subject approach is actually retained in this latest edition of the volume, but the content has been revised and substantially expanded to reflect the recent developments in the field of welding.
The book opens with the comprehensive review of the gas welding processes followed with the professional discussion covering the theoretical basics of the arc welding, including the arc physics and sources of power. After that, several arc welding techniques are discussed, including SAW, MMAW, TIG plus other types. Remaining chapters of the handbook deal with the various types of welding including resistance ald laser plus applications of the different welding techniques to such processes as brazing, cutting, soldering, hardfacing and cladding.
The main content also addresses the general matters of mechanization, welding design, safety issues, distortion, residual stress and other important technical factors. Moreover, the economical factors, e.g. the associated costs, are also covered. This volume confirms its established reputation and remains the remarkably comprehensive yet quite concise intro to all welding processes and their practical applications...
Briefly, the book is intended to provide a comprehensive overview of all techniques that are available in the industry for joining/repair offshore structures. Joining systems not involving the use of welding are discussed first. These engineering systems required for joining procedures are then discussed - pipe handling, design of the hyperbaric chambers etc.
The principal techniques of the underwater welding are then described - wet, one atmosphere plus hyperbaric welding, followed by a clear description of the major effects of environmental pressure on the hyperbaric welding processes. To make this section of the book more comprehensible to the general reader, a brief description of each welding process as it is used in general engineering is included before the modifications required for hyperbaric applications are discussed. Finally, those joining systems not used currently, but which show promise in the lab, are described, followed by some speculation relating to how underwater joining technology might develop over the next few years.
For general information, appendices providing description of the relevant diving technology, basic oceanography and also the methods of research commonly applied for the development of hyperbaric welding techniques are included. Although this book describes the technology of underwater repair at all water depths, it should be recognized that the great majority of offshore repair work is carried out at relatively shallow depths, in the region intermittently covered by the water, known as the "splash zone". This is because the speed of any object dropped from the platform or an adjacent ship is highest at the water line, while wave loadings, corrosion activity and the growth rate of marine life arc all at a maximum just below the surface.
In addition, the possibility of collision between shipping and the platform is also maximized at shallow depths. Thus, numerically, the majority of underwater repairs takes place at shallow depths, although the most economically and technologically significant arc in deeper water, frequently on pipelines.

The readers involved in steel design and construction have appreciated the content of this informative title and have found it simply excellent. The publication was worked out by William Segui giving students and professionals all required knowledge that is covering the critical aspects of the steel design process with the particular emphasis made on the design steel members together with their connections.
Segui has designed this book in such manner that would allow the instructors to teach ASD, LRFD (or both), bearing in mind that there is only minor conceptual difference between them. He has made a very good job attempting to simplify the complex topics plus design procedures. This is definitely a best option for the persons who want to study the underlying theoretical principles plus the fundamental mechanics of the steel members.
All complicated topics have been clearly explained and the author made them quite easy to be understood even for the persons without any specific background or professional experience. Talking about clarity, there is no any other textbook that could be comparable to "Steel Design". We do recommend this volume to a broad audience since the explanations of various theoretical topics have been presented in a very accessible manner. The theoretical chapters are supplemented with many examples all of which, in turn, are thoroughly explained.
The welding itself is treated as a technical skill of constantly increasing demand; in fact, we may say that the theoretical basics of welding could quite easily be learned by all students.
