-----Original Message-----A structural detailer said the it is not possible to weld a 1/4" thick beam plate stiffener using 1/4" weld. He said that even it is specified, the fabricators can not do it. Is this a correct statement? I like to know because a lot of engineers I know specify the same thing. I know that in lap joint, it is hard to weld a 1/4" thk plate by using 1/4" weld because the edge of plate is rounded so the actual weld size is 1/16" less than the thickness of the plate. But in my case, you have the stiffener plate against the web and flange of the W shape beam so I have the room to place the welding.
