The American Welding Society has issued a 646-page revised edition of its Structural Welding Code – Steel. AWS D1.1/D1.1M:2015 has been published, superseding the 2010 edition.
The new edition spells out the requirements for design, procedure and performance qualification, fabrication, inspection, and repair of steel structures made of tubes, plate, and structural shapes that are subject to either static or cyclic loading.
In addition to editorial changes in the text and commentary, this edition includes the reorganization of tubular clauses, tables, and figures previously located throughout the code into a new “Tubular Structures” clause. A corresponding new section of commentary is included in the revised edition.
The publication is the joint effort of the D1 Committee on Structural Welding and its D1Q Subcommittee on Steel.
The publication sales division will now be known as the AWS Technical Standards Sales department and will continue to operate the AWS Bookstore.
