By J. Hicks (Auth.)

A pragmatic 'how to do it' ebook written with the layout and welding interface in brain. It informs designers not just of what they need to learn about welding but in addition, and most significantly, units out the knowledge the dressmaker should still provide to the welding engineer or fabrication superintendent in order that the designer's goals should be completed, when it comes to engineering functionality, protection, reliability, price and visual appeal

An allowance of about 2mm should be left to prevent melting away of the edge. The reader may find it interesting to repeat this calculation for welds made from one side only as in a tube-to-plate joint. As a practical note, it should be remembered that a fillet weld cannot be made on the corner of a section because the edge melts away and reduces the fillet size.

33). 37 CHAPTER 6 Welding procedures The phrase 'welding procedures' occurs so often in talk about welded products that it is important that its meaning is understood. British Standard 499 defines a welding procedure as 'a specific course of action followed in welding, including a list of materials and, where necessary, tools to be used'. A welding procedure for a particular joint is described in a document called a 'welding procedure specification', WPS for short. The WPS is prepared by the welding engineer and includes all the information necessary to make the weld.

Quite often there are circumstances where the design goes through several stages. A conceptual design may be handed over to a detail designer to develop who may then pass it to the draughtsman who prepares the shop drawings so that there is no direct link between the original designer and the fabricator. At the other extreme, the draughtsman's office may open on to the shopfloor. In both cases it is important that clear instructions as to what is required are passed on and in so doing recorded for future use.
