Online Sources

Engineers and Designers, are generally well informed in their art.

They may have enjoyed, however, only limited exposure to the vaste range of subjects that form the core of Welding Engineering.

To prevent dangerous and costly errors, it would be wise to submit drawings calling for welding, to the review of welding experts.

It should be recognized that with increasing specialization it is impossible to have all the wisdom in a single person.

Due to the importance of the subject, readers may find interest in researching sources capable of providing ideas or information items suitable to help them in performing successfully their jobs.

This Bulletin_98 intends to supply such a useful Reference List.

It could be kept handy for reference when required, to get Resources that may be needed in special cases.

In the following also Commercial Sources are included. There is no intention to endorse or promote any of them. However valuable information can be gleaned also from such publications.

Before committing to specific recommendations, Readers should make sure that the proposed solutions meet their needs and purposes.

The references published in this Bulletin_98 were selected to provide useful knowledge to our readers.

The addresses reported hereafter in this Bulletin_98 were live and correct at the time of their publication.

There is no guarantee that they will always be so, because they are administered by the sources themselves and are under their control.

Note: References to articles or other documents are given here in one of two forms.

If the links are "live" (usually underlined or otherwise highlighted) they are operated with a click of the mouse.

If they are URL's (Uniform Resource Locator), which is the analogue of an address, they begin with "http://..." or "www.".

These are not live and must be copied and pasted entirely into the browser (after having selected them with the mouse or otherwise).

If they are long they may be displayed in two or more lines.

In that case one has to care that the URL be copied completely in a single line without any space, and Enter.

If the information is important to you, you may save the downloaded selected pages in a suitable folder on your Computer for easy reference.

You are welcome to forward this Bulletin_98 Resources page to those of your friends who may profit of this information.
