Advances in joining technologies, as well as new materials, has given rise to greater expectations among engineers, designers, and manufacturers for higher performance and product life. Moreover, advances in even traditional joining technologies such as rivets, bolts and mechanical fasteners has led to dramatic savings in cost and manufacturing time. This book meets this changing technical world head on, with complete coverage of nearly every known major form of joining technology. All new areas of welding including laser and fusion welding, along with new advances in composite and polymer bonding, are covered. The reader will find it easy and convenient to look up subjects either by type of joining technology (Part 1) or type of material (Part 2). This book is written to all engineers, including those in mechanical, materials and manufacturing engineering. But all readers in a wide array of technical fields will find here a unique informational resource, whether they are looking for help in machine assembly or structural materials assembly, or even in biotechnical problems involving tissue to non-tissue bonding. *Coverage all of major joining technologies, including welding, soldering, brazing, adhesive and cement bonding, pressure fusion, riveting, bolting, snap-fits, and more *Organized by both joining techniques and materials types, including metals, non-metals, ceramics and glasses, composites, biomaterials, and living tissue *An ideal reference for design engineers, students, package and product designers, manufacturers, machinists, materials scientistsThis book meets this changing technical world head on, with complete coverage of nearly every known major form of joining technology.
