AWS- B2.1/B2.1M:2014 Specification for Welding Procedure and Performance Qualification


B2.1/B2.1M:2014 Specification for Welding Procedure and Performance Qualification, provides the requirements for qualification of welding procedure specifications, welders, and welding operators for manual, semiautomatic, mechanized, and automatic welding. The welding processes included are electrogas welding, electron beam welding, electroslag welding, flux cored arc welding, gas metal arc welding, gas tungsten arc welding, laser beam welding, oxyfuel gas welding, plasma arc welding, shielded metal arc welding, stud arc welding, and submerged arc welding. Base metals, filler metals, qualification variables, welding designs, and testing requirements are also included. ISBN 978-0-87171-512-8 

Printed Hard CopyThis standard contains the essential welding variables for chromium-molybdenum steel in the thickness range of 1/8 through 1/2 in. in the as-welded condition, or 1/8 in. through 1-1/2 in. in the postweld heat treated (PWHT) condition, using manual shielded metal arc welding. It cites the base metals and operating conditions necessary to make the weldment, the filler metal specifications, and the allowable joint designs for groove welds. This welding procedure specification (WPS) was developed primarily for pipe applications. ISBN 087171-593-7
