Shielded Metal Arc Welding is a write-in text that progresses from basic theory to specialized techniques. It focuses on the shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) process. A unit on welding problems provides solutions that students can use when they encounter an issue. New and expanded content updated for this edition includes fire safety and protection; unclassified electrodes; welding positions; filler metal content; weld penetration; voltage polarity; low hydrogen electrodes; deposit rate; nondestructive testing; destructive testing; and the responsibilities of a welding inspector.
  • This text prepares students for the Written Knowledge and Workmanship Performance Tests for Module 4 of AWS SENSE Level I – Entry Welder certification.
  • Write-in format allows students to work at their own pace and instructors to easily monitor student progress and comprehension.
  • Directions for vertical welding have been expanded to provide more detail, helping students master this process.
