Choice between intermittent and continuous fillet weld in Crane girder ( I beam with channel top)

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

Fabricator is insisting in providing intermittent fillet weld in Crane girder (I-beam with channel top).


I have seen continuous weld not a problem contrary to fabricator who is  advocating that continuous weld will leave warped channel surface.


Please advice / share your experience.



Channel web thickness is  .4 inch and recommended continuous weld is ¼.
