Welding across the flange?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Quick question....

Problems with welding across the flange of a steel member?

I know its done with moment connections  and when you do this with other
materials such as aluminum you must take reductions in allowables.

But with steel?  Why would an inspector caution against welding across a
flange?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
