The purpose of this Bulletin_102 is to provide links to Online Sources.

Good Welding Design is fundamental to the manufacture of successful products.

In our page on
Weld-design-review we stress why it is important to Review every design resorting to welding fabrication.

The reason is due to particular aspects of Metallurgy and of Welding Technology that Design Engineers, however knowledgeable and expert in their specific specialization, may not be familiar with.

No less authority than the AWS Welding Handbook suggests that designers should "refrain to rely only on their own knowledge and experience" but should be "encouraged to consult with welding experts wherever appropriate".

Professional review may detect minor details likely to cause problems and useless costs in production if not taken care of in time.

It is especially significant when production runs are large and repetitive.

This Bulletin_102 intends to supply a useful Reference List to add further information that can be found, besides in the reference mentioned above, in the following pages of this website:

This Bulletin_102 could be kept handy for reference when required, to get Resources that may be needed.
