Structural Welding Quality Handbook 2016

$27.95

Based upon AWS D1.1-2016 Structural Welding Code – Steel, and the 2016 AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings

 

a must for:

  • ironworkers, fitters and welders
  • inspectors
  • fabricators and erectors
  • engineers and detailers

4″ by 8″ pocket-sized convenience, 128 pages

 

The Structural Welding Quality Handbook has been prepared to assist welders, supervisors, inspectors, engineers, and others involved in the design, fabrication, erection and inspection of steel-framed buildings and structures in achieving quality workmanship and inspection in their welding operations. 

 

Included in the Handbook are topics such as:

  • welding inspection tasks, before during and after welding, assigned by AISC 360-16
  • welding inspection tasks, before during and after welding, referenced to AWS D1.1:2015
  • discontinuities and defects – definitions, measurement, acceptance criteria, and repair requirements; with causes and recommendations
  • prequalified groove weld joint details, measurement and tolerances for common joints
  • fillet weld measurement and fit-up tolerances
  • preheat and interpass temperature tables and measurement
  • minimum weld sizes
  • reentrant corner, beam cope and weld access hole details
  • welding procedure guidelines and troubleshooting
  • welder qualification tables based upon plate tests
  • electrode classification and selection tables for SMAW, FCAW, and GMAW
  • SMAW electrode exposure limits
  • guidelines for minimizing distortion
  • thermal cutting quality and guidelines
  • air carbon arc gouging guidelines
  • metric conversion tables
  • welding position figures and tables
  • welding symbols
  • and much more.
