This is a common issue. This is also
known as a broke back stair stringer. Be careful so that you get what you
intend. If you truly need a full pen weld, then specify what you
need. If you get a true full pen weld, you will then have run off tabs
and you will have a weld access hole through the web. It will not be
For you steel fabricating welding gurus out there, I am looking a stair stringer that is cantilevered and requires a full pen weld at the joint from the sloped portion of the stringer to the horizontal landing. I think the B-U2 groove weld would be the way to go as there is no requirement for weld tabs. It appears that it can be used at the flanges with the angle and the base metal thickness is unlimited.
Is this what is customarily called for on a full pen weld on a stair stringer or something else? If this is acceptable, can the near side and far side be ground flush?
