Welding - Spring 2017

Gas Tungsten Arc Welding — 3717
WLD 1370 – 3 credits
Charles W. Holtz

This course introduces the gas tungsten arc (GTAW) welding process. Topics include correct selection of tungsten, polarity, gas, and proper filler rod with emphasis placed on safety, equipment setup, and welding techniques. Upon completion, students should be able to perform GTAW fillet and groove welds with various electrodes and filler materials. Eligibility: MAT 0500; must meet minimum reading score: Accuplacer 70+. J spring. Master Course Syllabus

Adv Shielded Metal Arc Welding — 3589
WLD 2250 – 3 credits
Richard D. Phinney

Advanced shielded metal arc (stick) welding techniques will be performed using mild steel electrodes in the flat, horizontal, vertical, and overhead positions on structural plate. Identifying and analyzing defects in welding joints is emphasized. Carbon steel plate is welded using shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) to American Welding Society (AWS) Code. Students will develop skills necessary to make quality welds on carbon steel pipe with open root and backing rings according to AWS, American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), and American Petroleum Institute (API) code. Prerequisite: WLD 1350; Eligibility: MAT 1210 or MAT 0600. J fall. Master Course Syllabus

Adv Gas Metal Arc Welding — 3592
WLD 2260 – 3 credits
Richard D. Phinney

Advanced gas metal arc welding practices and power source technology, including programmable and pulsing constant voltage machines, will be used. Machine set-up and techniques for nonferrous metals, including aluminum and stainless steel, will be practiced. Advanced arc welding techniques will be performed in the flat, horizontal, vertical, and overhead positions on structural plate. Identifying and analyzing defects in welding joints is emphasized. Carbon steel plate is welded using Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) to American Welding Society (AWS) Code. Students will develop skills necessary to make quality welds on carbon steel pipe with open root and with backing rings according to AWS, American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), and American Petroleum Institute (API) code. Prerequisite: WLD 1360; Eligibility: MAT 1210 or MAT 0600. J fall. Master Course Syllabus

Adv Gas Tungsten Arc Welding — 3596
WLD 2270 – 3 credits
Jordan S. Hults

Advanced study and practice of the gas tungsten arc welding process are emphasized. Advanced joint designs are mastered on carbon steel, aluminum, and stainless steel. A required American Welding Society Workmanship sample will be fabricated and welded. Students will also weld GTAW on pipe according to ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) procedures. Theory and practice of GTAW on ferrous and non-ferrous metals in all positions will be covered. Upon completion, students should be able to perform GTAW welds with prescribed electrodes and filler materials on various joint geometries. Prerequisite: WLD 1370; Eligibility: MAT 1210 or MAT 0600.
