Dozens of updates to the AWS D1.1 Structural Welding Code - Steel make this 2015 Edition indispensable for anyone designing, building, or inspecting steel structures and products.
What's in the AWS D1.1 Structural Welding Code: For everyone involved in any phase of welding steel structures - engineers, detailers, fabricators, erectors, inspectors, etc. - the new 604-page edition of the AWS D1.1 Structural Welding Code spells out the requirements for design, procedures, qualification, fabrication, inspection, and repair.
A wide range of projects, repairs, and product forms come under its authority, including pipe, plate, and structural shapes that are subject to either static or cyclical stresses.
The 2015 AWS D1.1/D1.1M: Structural Welding Code includes:
- Design of tubular and nontubular welded connections
- Prequalification of welding procedures
- Qualification of new procedures and personnel
- Fabrication requirements, including base metals, consumables and tolerances
- Inspection requirements and acceptance criteria for various examination methods
- Stud welding design, production, and inspection requirements
- Strengthening and repair of existing structures
- An extensive commentary annex that provides time-saving interpretation
- Dozens of valuable reference tables, charts, and forms
- And much more
Significant changes in 2015 Edition:
- new prequalification variable tables and accompanying commentary added to clarify what variables must be listed on prequalified WPSs and what ranges they are allowed
- matching and undermatching table in the prequalification section was revised to clarify intent
- weld profile requirements were clarified and slightly revised
- shelf bar requirements were added
- thermal cut requirements were changed
- weld access hole and beam cope requirements were revised and clarified
- weathering steel requirements were expanded to include more materials
- three new materials were added to the list of prequalified materials
- issue on CVN qualification was clarified to avoid unnecessary testing
- backing requirements revised to allow discontinuous backing in limited applications
- headed stud requirements revised and clarified for burst cracks
