A Guide to Laser Welding

Covering a wide span of themes within the laser welding research area, from the material science to the final products (including their performance on structural applications), passing by the fundamental aspects of mathematical and engineering characterization, product specification, limitations and possibilities of different laser welding technique, the book can be a useful source of information for decision-making by experienced engineers, as well as a reference work for students seeking for beginning his/her research activities in the field. Given the rapid and constantly evolving technology aspects in such a transversal (and integrative) area of research, the present book is an added value for the future in the domain of Laser Welding Techniques.” – Professor Robertt Valente, Head, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Aveiro, Portugal.
