Introduction : Welding is the process by which two or more materials (usually metals or thermoplastics) are joined together to become one piece . The ends of the two materials being joined are subjected to heat, pressure or a combination of both in order to melt them. Then a filler is placed between the two molten parts to form a weld pool that cools to become a strong permanent joint. Welding is usually an industrial process, however it can be performed in many different environments including open air, under water, and in outer space. It can be done both manually and automatically. This science continues to advance and flourish and today robot welding is commonly used in industries.(cars factories manly use it). Welding is a hazardous process and precautions are required to avoid burns, electric shocks, vision damage, inhalation of gases and fumes, and exposure to intense ultraviolet radiation. (Precautions are discussed in detail in the exercise steps) Energy Sources Used : Many different energy sources can be used to carry out the welding. These include: gas flame, electric arc, laser, electron beam, friction and ultrasound. Hazard Sign

Results and Discussion: Types of Welding: There are many types of welding and the processes can be classified according to the combination of pressure and temperature used in them. The table below shows the different welding types available. Types of Welding Welding Type Subgroups Gas Welding Air-acetylene welding, Oxy-acetylene welding, Oxy-hydrogen welding, Pressure gas welding Arc Welding Carbon arc welding, TIG welding, MIG welding, Submerged arc welding, Shielded metal arc welding, Plasma arc welding, Flux cored arc welding, Stud arc welding, Electro slag welding Resistance Welding Spot welding, Steam welding, Percussion welding, High frequency welding, Projection welding, Resistance butt welding, Flash butt welding and those is the ones that we have took in the workshop. The main types of welding used in industry and by home engineers are MIG welding, Arc welding, Gas welding, and TIG welding . There are other types of welding such as : solid state welding , radiant energy welding , thermo-chemical welding. And now we going to discuss the types of welding in details :

1. Arc Welding : It is a type of welding that uses electrical energy to heat the base metals. Either direct current or indirect current can be used. Either consumable or non-consumable electrodes can be used. In arc welding, the voltage is directly related to the length of the arc, and the current is related to the amount of heat input.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
