Re: WF Beams with F.P Weld @ Midspan

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

I worked with some transition/tapered beam. FP weld is alright, but
need to ensure that
the joint is 100% FP. The fit-up should be good with smooth surface,
root run should be could
and to be checked, Gouging on other sid after completing welding on
one side, sufficient scallop should be provided for good accessibility
and 100% MPI and UT.

Sharp nothces should be ground off.
