Welding - Spring 2018

Applied Welding — 3816
WLD 1240 – 3 credits
Richard D. Phinney

Students will understand the three most common welding processes that are available to perform welds and the numerous ways to cut various materials. The welding processes included are oxy-fuel, plasma, and use of various mechanical cutting machines. Upon completion, students will be able to perform code quality welds on plates of various thicknesses in all three processes, as well as perform cutting operations on plates using all cutting equipment. Eligibility: MAT 0500; must meet minimum reading score: Accuplacer 70+. J spring. Master Course Syllabus

Adv Shielded Metal Arc Welding — 3430
WLD 2250 – 3 credits
Charles W. Holtz

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 — 3432
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

Mar 14 – May 17 Mon, Wed 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Adv Gas Tungsten Arc Welding — 3436
WLD 2270 – 3 credits
Charles W. Holtz

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.
