Fabricators’ and Erectors’ Guide to Welded Steel Construction

Fabricators’ and Erectors’ Guide to Welded Steel Construction

This  Fabricators’ and  Erectors’ Guide  to  Welded  Steel Construction has been produced by The Lincoln Electric Company in order to help promote high quality and cost effective welding.  This guide is not to be used as a sub-stitute for the AWS D1.1 Structural Welding Code, or any other applicable welding code or specification, and the user  bears  the  responsibility  for  knowing  applicable codes  and  job  requirements.    Rather, this  document incorporates  references  to  the  D1.1-96  code, and  adds explanation, clarification, and  guidelines  to  facilitate compliance with the code.  At the time of writing, this guide reflects the current industry views with respect to steel fabrication, with specific emphasis on the new pro visions that have been recently imposed for fabrication of structures designed to resist seismic loads.  These provisions  are  largely  drawn  from  the  Federal  Emergency Management  Administration  (FEMA)  Document  No.
267, produced by the SAC Consortium, whose members include  the  Structural  Engineers  Association  of California, Applied Technology Council, and California Universities  for  Research and  Earthquake  Engineering.
Another  cited  document  is  the  AWS  D1  Structural Welding  Committee’s  Position  Statement  on  the Northridge earthquake.  Research is still underway, and additional  provisions  may  be  found  that  will  further increase the safety of welded steel structures.  The user of  this  document  must  be  aware  of  changes  that  may occur  to  codes  published  after  this  guide, specific  job requirements, and various interim recommendations that may affect the recommendations contained herein.
