It Just Ain't So: Welding Myths that Structural Engineers Need to Know About
Most structural engineering educational programs contain little coverage on the important topic of welding. A variety of welding-related myths continue to be promulgated, often times by well-intended, albeit misinformed professionals. Without the formal training to dispute such claims, these myths live on. In this presentation, myths are presented and challenged. Topics discussed include selection of weld types, weld orientation, weld backing, shop versus field welding, overhead welding, prequalified WPSs, weld quality and welding costs.
