See Appendix D, Item a. Where the weld complies with the relevant test requirements of Clause 4. Prior to and during welding, the inspector shall inspect the set-up of the work and ensure that— a b c welds are in accordance with the drawings; the welding is carried out on the specified material with suitable equipment; correct procedures are maintained; and the work is performed in accordance with the requirements of this Standard.
The total arc energy for the process is the sum of all arc energies for each individual arc. The permitted heat input range see Clauses 4. The use of preheat before air-arc or plasma gouging should be considered. Licence means the right to access and use the Product. It should then involve a progressive reduction in frequency of testing, on the basis of achieving compliance with each test.
A procedure qualification on a single-V butt weld that has been welded from only the one side shall qualify for welding a double-V butt weld and a single-V butt weld that has been welded on both sides. Any recommendations of the manufacturer, covering protection during storage and use, conditioning and pretreatment of electrodes or filler wires prior to use, shall be followed.
Shear probes shall have a dominant frequency in the range 2.
In all other cases or where equivalence cannot be established, it will be necessary to requalify the weld procedure in accordance with the requirements of this Standard.
With the exception of quenched and tempered steels, parent materials not identified to a Standard nominated in Item c above may be used, provided one of the following requirements is met: These records shall be kept and made available to those authorized to examine them. The Standard is limited to the welding of steel parent material with a specified minimum yield strength not exceeding MPa. Steel Structures Seminar Series Only sections X and Z apply to unequal-width rectangular hollow sections.
The designer can choose from a selection of systems based on exposed service life to first maintenance for various environments.
Grinding or repair of the capping passes of test welds is not permitted. Should discontinuities be later detected in the weld heat affected zone it should be remembered that imperfections of parent metal origin are not considered a cause for rejection of the weld see Clause 6. It should then involve a progressive reduction in frequency of testing, on the basis of achieving compliance with each test.
The preheat shall be applied in such a manner as will ensure that the full thickness of the materials to be welded is nnzs to the required temperature. Tolerances for butt-welded joints, for electroslag and electrogas see Clause 5. Restart the weld from the top of the taper slope.

See Appendix G for guidance on the relationship between these steels and material group numbers utilized in other Standards. When applying these thickness limitations, an adjustment to the minimum preheat temperature may be required see Clause 5. The simplest level of procedures is the SWMS system.
This Standard was published on 17 June Similarly, procedures qualified for category SP may be employed without further qualification for category GP of this Standard. This is a greatly misunderstood area and we would love to help you manage it. These sections apply to circular hollow sections. Inspection aids and measuring devices shall be sufficient to enable the inspector to detect imperfections that could occur on welds and test pieces.
Fire precautions Part 2: For adjacent imperfections, see Clause 6.
These designations are now consistent for all welding processes for which the harmonized ISO system has been applied. Licensees are permitted to print once for Internal use limited to the Quantity specified in the SAI Global Infostore order only excludes electronic pads of forms.
A procedure qualification on a single-J butt weld that has been welded from only the one side shall qualify for welding a double-J butt weld and a single-J butt weld that has been welded on both sides.
Availability of records, for perusal by inspector see Clause 4.
Unless it can be proved otherwise for the remainder of the test plate e. A procedure qualification on a single-U butt weld that has been welded from only the one side shall qualify for welding a double-U butt weld and a single-U butt weld that has been welded on both sides. Mr Vijai Moorthy Date: Aas square butt weld, welded both sides B-C 1b Open-joint square butt weld, welded both sides t 1554. y p o g i r Position G t h 6 max.
See Appendix D, Item v. We need your help 15554.1 maintenance this website. Electrodes that nzss not comply with the above Standards may be used, provided they are qualified in accordance with the requirements of Clause 4. The requirements or recommendations contained in published Standards are a consensus of the views of representative interests and also take account of comments received from other sources.
No change is required. Transverse guided bend test Method 5. Where non-complying welds are detected during a spot examination, two additional spots, each of the same length as the original spot, should be examined.
AS 1554.1 & AS/NZS 1554.1
The centre-to-centre spacing between plug welds shall be not less than four times the diameter of 15541 hole. Co Electrodes or filler wires for processes other than manual metal-arc welding shall comply with AS The probe angle shall be the actual measured angle, not the nominal angle. Co ii py rig Joint preparations for combinations of fillet welds and butt welds, complying with the details shown in Figure 4. This is NOT an indentured tradesman with Cert 2 or 3. Joint details that minimize stress intensity on parent materials subject to stress in the through-thickness direction shall be used where practical.
