RE: Shear Stud Welding In The Field with Galvanized Steel

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Good stuff, Harold, thanks!

On a side-note, I find it interesting that this research was done at 
Letourneau University, a small private college in NE Texas founded by the 
guy who also founded Caterpillar. It's a sort of "bible-thumper" college, I 
 suppose, but of personal interest to me as my wife obtained her B.S. in 
Business Management from there at an evening "extension" program here in 

It's funny, she gets all sorts of "alumni" mailings, etc., but has actually 
 never set foot on their campus.

This was in the pre-U of Phoenix days when adult degree-completion was 
still a coming thing.

There are ways to weld studs through galvanized steel deck.  The iron 
workers for Northwest Steel Erectors did a good job for me on a recent 
project.  It takes a bit of work to calibrate the guns, but it can be done.

This was a study done in 2006 for AISC:
