Re: Specifications - Welding in Seismic Zone

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
This seems to be my week to be inquisitive.

I am not familiar, yet, with the AWS D1.8. However, I believe that the AWS
D1.1 does not provide guidance with respect to testing. Your comment
suggests that there are "extra NDE" requirements in D1.8.

What type of extra NDE does it specify (e.g. when, how)? What is the base
requirement to which this is extra (e.g. code, standard)?
