    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Sets out requirements for qualification tests which are specially devised to determine the ability of a welder, using consumable electrode arc-welding processes, to produce sound weld in steels. It is based on AWS D 1.1-85 and covers qualification requirements for welders using hand-held and non-hand-held equipments.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for qualification tests which are specially devised to determine the ability of a welder, using consumable electrode arc welding processes, to produce sound welds in steels. This Standard does not deal with the certification of welders, this subject being covered by AS 1796.
