Weld Troubleshooting for Non Welding Engineers can help Welding Engineers too.

Most welding engineers are in charge of specific product lines, or work for a single company and are limited in terms of their experience troubleshooting welidng problems.  They can be experts in a specific welding process and fixing issues related to the type and thickness of materials they deal with on a daily basis.  But when a new application comes along that uses a different welding process or a type of material that is quite different and then it becomes harder to troubleshoot.

Also, cracking is a very serious issue.  Cracking must not only be fixed but prevented at all costs.  Arriving to the root cause of a crack is not always simple.  Understanding how the crack originated, where and why is very important. These are all things that a welding engineer should be able to handle, but it is not always the case.  This guide devotes almost 40 pages to understandnig, diagnosing, fixing and preventing the many different types of cracks that occure in welding.
