The work intends to review the study of the fundamental properties of brass and copper, the behavior of the weldment formed by the combination of brass and copper, effects of tribology in the weldment, and the types of welding techniques available for the welding purpose. The literature review helped us to engage in the study covering the fundamental aspects. In this research article, we have attempted to study the basics of the corrosion phenomenon, wide aspects of types of welding, properties of brass and copper, and the terminologies in tribology.
