AWS (The American Welding Society) is the worldwide leader in certification programs for the welding industry. Since the CWI (Certified Welding Inspectors) program inception in 1976, AWS has certified more than 100,000 welding inspectors alone, plus thousands more working professionals across other certification categories. AWS conducts exams in locations around the world, including 550 U.S. sites and 40 countries each year. Many candidates mistakenly assume their field experience is enough to obtain certification, only to end up frustrated when they fail to pass their exam. Certification exams are intentionally comprehensive to ensure the welding industry the high-quality personnel needed to handle these complex roles. The process requires almost everyone to prepare to some extent - even those with years of experience: How much preparation? It depends upon your current skills and knowledge. Are the rewards worth it? The rewards are often worth the time you invest: certification can boost your earnings significantly and expand your career opportunities. While there are a few books that can be purchased from the AWS and outside sources on the CWI exam, there are no publications dedicated to helping CWI candidates pass the exam. This title was written for that express purpose. This work is a comprehensive collection of preparatory exam questions and answers for welders, inspectors, students, or anyone interested in the welding metallurgical field. The work boasts appendices that include tables, formulas, lists of organizations and major corporations employing welders and inspectors.

As critically important as welding is to a wide spectrum of manufacturing, construction, and repair, it is not without its problems. Those dependent on welding know only too well how easy it is to find information on the host of available processes and on the essential metallurgy that can enable success, but how frustratingly difficult it can be to find guidance on solving problems that sooner or later arise with welding, welds, or weldments. Here for the first time is the book those that practice and/or depend upon welding have needed and awaited. A Practical Guide to Welding Solutions addresses the numerous technical and material-specific issues that can interfere with success. Renowned industrial and academic welding expert and prolific author and speaker Robert W. Messler, Jr. guides readers to the solutions they seek with a well-organized search based on how a problem manifests itself (i.e., as distortion, defect, or appearance), where it appears (i.e., in the fusion zone heat-affected zone, or base metal), or it certain materials or situations.

Mathematically rigorous, computationally fast, and easy to use, this new approach to electromagnetic well logging gives the reservoir engineer a new dimension to MWD/LWD interpretation and tool design Almost all publications on borehole electromagnetics deal with idealizations that are not acceptable physically. On the other hand, exact models are only available through detailed finite element or finite difference analysis, and more often than not, simply describe case studies for special applications. In either case, the models are not available for general use and the value of the publications is questionable. This new approach provides a rigorous, fully three-dimensional solution to the general problem, developed over almost two decades by a researcher familiar with practical applications and mathematical modeling. Completely validated against exact solutions and physics-based checks through over a hundred documented examples, the self-contained model (with special built-in matrix solvers and iteration algorithms) with a plain English graphical user interface has been optimized to run extremely fast seconds per run as opposed to minutes and hours and then automatically presents all electric and magnetic field results through integrated three-dimensional color graphics. In addition to state-of-the-art algorithms, basic utility programs are also developed, such as simple dipole methods, Biot-Savart large diameter models, nonlinear phase and amplitude interpolation algorithms, and so on. Incredibly useful to oilfield practitioners, this volume is a must-have for serious professionals in the field, and all the algorithms have undergone a laborious validation process with real use in the field. This groundbreaking new volume contains: * A general three-dimensional electromagnetic model for nondipolar transmitters in layered anisotropic media with dip, developed for MWD/LWD well logging and tool design, offering accurate solutions in seconds as opposed to minutes or hours * An approach that helps readers explore new transmitter and receiver concepts and designs * Information on model steel mandrels, charge radiation from layer interfaces, large coil and thin layer effects, anisotropic media and low resistivity pay, borehole eccentricity and invasion, with a new and powerful model developed from first principles * A new approach that removes physical limitations associated with dipole, integral equation, Born, geometric factor or hybrid techniques and explains how these problems are overcome, building on advances from aerospace computational fluid mechanics * Mathematical and programming details as well as ready-to-use software with integrated three-dimensional color graphics for those needing immediate answers

Metal Cutting Mechanics outlines the fundamentals of metal cutting analysis, reducing the extent of empirical approaches to the problems as well as bridging the gap between design and manufacture. The author distinguishes his work from other works through these aspects:
considering the system engineering of the cutting process
identifying the singularity of the cutting process among other closely related manufacturing processes by chip formation, caused by bending and shear stresses in the deformation zone
suggesting a distinctive way toward predictability of the metal cutting process
devoting special attention to experimental methodology
Metal Cutting Mechanics provides an exceptional balance between general reading and research analysis, presenting industrial and academic requirements in terms of basic scientific factors as well as application potential.

Whether you are beginning your first career, changing careers, or ready to move up and start your own business as a carpenter, plumber, HVAC/R tech, or other tradesman, this is the book that will tell you how. There are currently over 6.5 million unfilled jobs in the skilled trades in the US.
