RE: Embedment Plate Welds

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Actually that is the testing protocol described in AWS D1.1 Chapter 7 for the studs (in addition to visual inspection).  I am not aware of an ASTM.  The goal is for a 30deg angle to be achieved, but it can also be accomplished with a pipe "hickey" instead of a hammer. Threaded studs can be tested based on torque.

Subject: Fwd: Embedment Plate Welds

 I recall a List post that addressed "field testing" bent anchor bar/headed studs welds to embedment plates with a hammer and some muscle. If the weld failed, then you obviously knew that the weld was NG. Is there a more formal or standard process (ASTM, etc.) available for field testing these welds?

As always,
Thanks in advance
