If you show a bevel groove weld without a root callout is it customary to assume it is a full penetration weld?
The weld symbol should have the weld size indicated if it is not to be a full penetration weld. I think that means yes. It's the symbol convention that dictates the weld detail. Someone didn't make a full penetration weld, and now the contractor is saying that the drawing was at fault because it didn't say full penetration, right? I think there must be a special course in contractor college called 'grasping at straws.'
