Tack Welding for Rebar

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



I work for a construction system company, which main activity is the supply and on-site assembly of reinforcement for concrete structures, and we use the Europe Welding Code so I never have worked with any American Standards. I’ve to ensure safe handling, lifting, and transport cages which weights are more or less 2 Ton, and I think the tie wire isn’t suitable in this case. I going to use A615 rebar in the cages assemblies. I would like to know if there are special requirement for the tack welding.  I`ve been reading the AWS D1.1/D1.1M:2008 which contain the requirement for welding processes, and I’d like to know if the tack welding and welding crossing bars are the same terms. What kind of welding process is commonly used to make tack welds? Does this welding process adversely affect the mechanical properties of the rebar at the point of welding? I don’t know if the AWS allows welding A615 rebar, and I can’t see when weldability wouldn’t be important when it's used in a non-structural connection. There are tie-rod welding details for A615?


Thanks for any information and/or advice.
