Do you size your welds using 60 ksi knowing that you'll be conservative (As Roger Turk indicated)? Do you use 70 ksi and then on your weld symbol specify the specific, or minimum strength to be used? I have always used E70XX in my steel design. In my first 2 employments that was the office standard, and what I thought was the industry standard. I have never received a complaint or been questioned by a steel fabricator about it. Now, regarding the possibility of using either E60 or E70 on a project. IMHO I do not think this should be up for debate with the contractor. Meaning, the Contract Drawings should clearly specify which electrode should be used, and this is what the bid is based on. This serves 2 purposes. The first is that there is no question in anybody's mind which electrode is to be used. Secondly, and just as important, when someone in the future wants to modify the structure they can see clearly from the original drawings what electrode was used and base their modifications of the structure on it. __________________________________________________ Richard Lewis, P.E.
