RE: Shop Splices of Steel Beams

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
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?
