Could anyone supply me with a link or technical document(s) regarding SMAW procedures and inspection of welding of structural steel where the ambient and steel temperature is between -30C and -60C?
AWS D1,1 Subparagraph 3.1.3 Welding shall not be done when the ambient temperature is lower than 0F (-18C), (see 4.2) when surfaces are wet or exposed to rain, snow or high wind velocities, or when welders are exposed to inclement conditions. 4.2 explains additional requirements for preheat and interpass temperatures.
