Hello guys, mandatory science fair coming up and i've got a project in mind. I want to talk about the electron sharing and fusion of iron and steel at high temperatures. Does anyone have a good source of info on the specifics of forge welding? I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

Second "The Solid Phase Welding of Metals" Tylecote; my copy was borrowed by a metallurgy student once who was needing to know details.  Note this will not be a glance through the night before book; you will need to put some work in reading it and taking notes!

I'll second Fergusson, he's got a pretty good section on the bonding process in there. I don't recall if Midgett discussed it in greater detail or not (so probably not) but I will try to remember to check when I get home.

Now I gotta go look up Tylecote =\

Nope you can have solid phase welding at room temperature or even below!  Heat, Pressure and "Cleanliness" are the 3 factors; max any of them out and the other two can be quite low---so forge welding, explosive welding and galling and vacuum welding are all examples of solid phase welding with one of the trio maxed.

 

I can't say that Tylecote's book is a fast easy read but it is interesting to a certain type of person wanting to know the details....
