Instructional Guidelines. Welding.
Fordyce, H. L.; Doshier, Dale
Using the standards of the American Welding Society and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, this welding instructional guidelines manual presents a course of study in accordance with the current practices in industry. Intended for use in welding programs now practiced within the Federal Prison System, the phases of the program are designed for beginning and advanced students or metal workers interested in welding as a supplement to their trade. The guidelines are based on accepted practices of welding instruction, and encourage manipulative skills in using shielded arc electrodes. The guidelines also outline the process of oxyacetylene welding and cutting, gas tungsten-arc, and gas metal-arc welding. The lesson plans include suggested time allotment, an introduction to and illustration of the type of joint and welding position covered in the lesson, equipment and materials needed, and step-by-step procedures for accomplishing the lesson.
