About this book series

·        Transactions on Intelligent Welding Manufacturing (TIWM) aims to present the latest global research findings and cutting-edge developments in intelligentized welding technology, which has become one of the hottest research directions in intelligent manufacturing. Intelligentized welding manufacturing (IWM) includes complex information, networking and intelligent technology throughout the entire welding manufacturing process, and concepts integrating the areas of welding materials, structures, techniques, processing, equipment, products and market analysis. The series also aims to accelerate the transformation of basic research into industrial applications.

The series provides a forum for scholars and engineers interested in recent research in artificial intelligence, control, robotics, mechatronics and information science applied to industrial and manufacturing processes, especially in welding processes. It is a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary book series focusing on the development of intelligent modeling, controlling, monitoring, and evaluating and optimizing the manufacturing processes related to joining technology.

In addition to research work, the series TIWM features titles on new intelligentized methodologies and developments, case studies and surveys, as well as tutorials on topics related to:

l  Scientific theory of intelligentized welding manufacturing
