Our office policy is not to weld to A7 steel for main structural elements.
Not only is the welding difficult it adversely affects the parent material.
Handrails and light loads from cable trays are permitted on occasion.
I have never seen a welding procedure to a7 steel with modern steels. Anyone have one.
That being said, I have welded to A7 steels as a last resort, but then I put on lots. Double what is typically required.

I’m past the LBP problem and move on to my next consideration: Can one weld to A7 steel? I read that the carbon and manganese content can sometimes present welding problems and hence the development of A373 and then A36. If the connection is too small/tight to accommodate bolting, is welding an option on this material?
