Flux Cored Arc Welding Handbook provides comprehensive coverage of gas-shielded (FCAW-G) and self-shielded (FCAW-S) flux cored arc welding processes. The text presents fundamental skills and advanced techniques in clearly written language, reinforced with hundreds of illustrations. End-of-chapter questions reinforce the key concepts presented in the chapters. In addition to covering the basics of equipment setup, joint preparation, and techniques for welding carbon and low-alloy steel, this book includes specialized chapters focusing on welding stainless steel, welding cast iron, surfacing, and weld testing and inspection. This text prepares students to take the Written Knowledge and Workmanship Performance Tests for Module 6 of AWS SENSE Level 1–Entry Welder certification.

About Author(s)

William H. Minnick - realizing the need for a specialized type of welding text for instructors and students, drew on his many years of experience as a welder, welding engineer, and community college instructor to develop welding texts for training future welders. The author’s career in industry included experience welding on jet engines, missiles, pressure vessels, and nuclear reactors. He developed the welding procedures for, and welded, the first titanium pressure vessel for the Atlas missile program. He has written many technical papers, including articles on the research and development of procedures for welding exotic materials and on the modification of existing welding processes for automatic and robotic applications.

Mr. Minnick taught all phases of welding and metallurgy in community colleges for more than twenty years. He developed welding certificate and degree programs. In addition to this textbook, Mr. Minnick has authored the Gas Tungsten Arc Welding Handbook, Gas Metal Arc Welding Handbook, and the Flux Cored Arc Welding Handbook.
