The state of the art of the welding of stainless steels is reviewed. Welding preparations, specific welding processes, welding of dissimilar metals, and joint quality are discussed. The metallurgical factors involved when welding stainless steels are covered in terms of their metallographic characteristics, i.e., austenitic, ferritic and martensitic alloys. Methods of distortion control are discussed. The nonfusion welding processes, solid state welding, brazing and soldering as applied to stainless steels are reviewed. An Appendix details the basic characteristics of several welding processes. Author
