Re: Rebar welding

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Mark,

I'm not understanding a small portion of your response to Mark Bakers rebar
welding post. You state, " Besides if you use E-90 it is posible you could
exceed the allowable shear stress of the A-36 material."

Do you mean by using an E90 electrode the weld strength would exceed the
shear strength of the the plate? If so, wouldn't it be desireable to have
the plate (or rebar) yield be the capacity limiting criterion of the
assembly rather than the weld itself?

Thanks for your post.
