A study of advanced traditional and nontraditional welding methods. An analysis of the operation of AC and DC transformer, resistance, and MIG and TIG welding systems. Operational tests made on the effects of welding heats, polarities, and electrode types. Procedures such as welding ferrous and nonferrous materials and pipe joint welding will be practiced using the standard stick, MIG, TIG, and resistance welding methods. Research project will be assigned. Prerequisite: IND 31503. One-hour lecture, five-hour lab.
Offered Fall for 3 Semester hours.
