RE: Welding Failures - Welding Symbols

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


Ye old grey matter must be going soft.  Most of the structural codes AWS D1.1, 1.3, 1.4, 1.6, etc. have a sentence in the front that refers all welding symbols to AWS A2.4. and they generally read as follows:

Welding symbols shall be those designated to the latest edition of ANSI/AWS A2.4, Standard Symbols for Welding, Brazing, and Nondestructive Examinations.  Special conditions shall be fully explained by additional notes or details.

RE: Welding Failures



Weld symbols and the use of weld symbols has not changed.  Use of weld symbols is preferred and you would only provide a detailed sketch of a weld detail if were very complicated or the use of the standard weld symbols could not adequately describe the welding.

Well, I don’t have time to go through the old 1996-vintage copy of D1.1, but I am almost sure I remember reading that weld symbol usage was being “deprecated,” at least at that time.
