The welding of steel plays an important role as a major fabricating process in industry. In the field of welding metallurgy, much attention is given to the effects which a welding arc or flame will have on the structure and properties of the metals being joined. The engineer is interested in the intensify and extent of physical changes brought about by the unavoidable heat treatment which accompanies the execution of a weld. In order to gain some quantitative appreciation of the way in which the metallurgical effects of welding depend on welding variables, geometry, and physical properties, considerable attention has been given to the unique heat-transfer phenomena associated with the movement of heat sources in or on metal surfaces.
