RE: Stainless Steel

I would suggest you go to the website for the Specialty Steel Industry
of North America (www.ssina.com) ....they have free downloadable guides
which will probably give you all of the information you need for such an
application.  Lincoln Electric has a stainless welding guide also that
you can download.  There is a European stainless site (the name eludes
me) that has a lot of good (free) information also.

To All,

I am doing a small job which is designing the footing and base
plate/anchor bolts for a small water tank. The tank is horizontal and is
made of stainless steel with the two saddles also being stainless steel
but without holes for anchor bolts. So, I will need to weld on base
plates to the bottom of the saddles.

I don't have any specs for stainless steel, so can someone give me some
basic specs for welding stainless steel, (fillet welds), and the ASTM
designation and Fy for any type of stainless steel, (the loads are very
light and will be all shear loads so I can make this pretty simple).

Thanks in advance,

Larry Hauer S.E.
