I had a case where the fabricator cut and re-welded a beam to put camber in
it. I checked with AISC. They ( I don't remember who I talked to) said
that the weld was not sufficient reason to reject the beam. I did however
reject it for other reasons.

If a full penetration welded connection is provided in a beam and there
are no fatigue considerations, is this an acceptable condition to allow?
Should I required that the splice be tested? By what method?
