RE: Cold weather welding

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Welding at these temperatures usually requires weather protection. I also suspect that you should be using materials certified for low temperatures. We do this by specifying Charpy Notch Testing at the expected low temperature for structural steel, weld materials, and weld procedures.
You base the welds on AWS D1.1 and work with your welding engineer to develop the welding procedures.

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?
