Welding Ferrous Metals

“Welding Ferrous Metals” defines ferrous metals, describes the common forms of ferrous metal, and discusses best welding practices for each. Each type of ferrous metal has different mechanical, physical, and chemical properties. Though all ferrous metals contain iron, their varying compositions require a number of different welding approaches. Ferrous metals are the most common metals that welders will encounter. Knowledge of ferrous metal types, composition, and best welding practices is crucial. After taking this class, welders should be able to identify the various ferrous metals, their properties, and the best welding practices for each type.
